Decreased Glycaemic response
The glycæmic response is the increase in the blood glucose level after eating and/or drinking. It is an indication of the amount of glucose available to produce energy within the body. It could be particularly beneficial to reduce postprandial glycæmia for glucose-intolerant or diabetic subjects (Wiebe et al. 2011, EFSA, 2011). Indeed, some studies, but not all, showed reducing postprandial blood glucose and insulin levels could be beneficial to prevent type 2 diabetes (Blaak et al. 2012). Knowing that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is expected to increase by more than 50% between 2010 and 2030, it is particularly important to be able to formulate food that may contribute to regulate glucose metabolism, even if the current nutrition recommendations for those people are the same as the ones for healthy people.
