Diabetes and the associated costs of controlling the disease cast a long shadow over the US market. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), type-2 diabetes affects over 220 million people globally and the consequences of high blood sugar kill 3.4 million every year. If such statistics weren’t scary enough, the WHO is predicting deaths to double between 2005 and 2030.
Many healthy consumers are seeking out natural options to help them control their blood sugar levels, and the nutraceutical industry is responding with ingredients to help keep those glucose levels under control, from resveratrol to fenugreek, and from extracts from maqui berry and green tea. But which ingredients have the best science? How are the benefits being communicated? And what does the market say about the opportunities in this sector? NutraIngredients-USA brings together experts from industry, academia and market research to will find answers to these questions and more.
