Managing Glucose Response

May 2023

Monitoring and managing glucose response prevents disease and manages health conditions. It is a significant priority for consumers. Technological advancements with glucometers and continuous glucose monitors, combined with increased consumer knowledge have increased demand for foods that will not spike blood glucose levels.

“Losing weight and managing blood glucose levels leads to significantly improved health outcomes for individuals living with diabetes. Consuming foods with moderate glucose responses is important in this process. Clinical tests that measure postprandial glucose and insulin response identify foods that assist in glucose management,” says Dr. Andreea Zurbau, Research Associate at INQUIS. “At INQUIS, our research supports food and ingredient manufacturers who develop products to attenuate glucose response.”
