Sustained Energy Release Starchy Food Products

Sustained Energy Release Starchy Food Products

Lowering the rate of starch digestion is a unique opportunity to maintain normal blood glucose and insulin levels. 

The advantage of slowly digestible starch (SDS) is that it is a source of sustained glucose release and stabilizes blood glucose levels. Benefits of this condition are linked to diabetes management and effects on satiety, calorie intake and mental and physical performance. We will develop consumer centric foods with health claims on sustained energy release by using innovative technologies that impact food structure at the microscopic level. A first product should be launched before and a second one shortly after the end of the project. The project outcome will be applicable to other food categories.
