Botanical extracts without maltodextrin with preclinical studies on diabetes and glycemic index.
A focus on the health and well-being of people with a new line of botanical extracts based on Buckwheat (BuckNat®) and Spelt (SpeltIng®) as functional carriers: botanical extracts naturally rich in fiber and mineral salts, with high satiating powder but low glycemic index. The use of NatIng buckwheat and spelt as functional matrix to support extracts is a new and valid alternative to the conventional maltodextrin.
This allows us to prepare plant extracts with a reduced glycaemic impact, considering that diabetes is a metabolic disease preventable through a healthy lifestyle, which, according to WHO estimates, affects 422 million people worldwide.
In Italy alone, the National Statistics Institute (ISTAT) reported that 4.9% of the population suffered from diabetes in 2010, equal to around 2.960.000 people. More recent data from the latest ISTAT surveys in 2016 shows a percentage increase in diabetics, reporting that 5.3% of the entire population, equal to over 3.200.000 people, claims to be suffering from the disease.
