Over a number of clinical studies, Reducose has been shown to lower the glycaemic index of common carbohydrates and to induce lower blood glucose levels from foods and drinks containing sugar and/or complex carbohydrates. In two separate studies in India and China that followed the WHO/FAO standards for glycaemic index testing foods, Reducose was shown to lower the glycaemic index of common dietary dissacchrides such as sucrose maltose, as well as polysaccharides such as in healthy individuals.
Glycaemic response and insulaemic response studies In two separate clinical studies run in collaboration with the University of Southampton Medical School and University of Oxford Brookes Functional Food Centre, Reducose was shown to have a marked effect on blood glucose after eating sugary or starch rich meals. In the clinical trials, Reducose was shown to lower peak blood glucose and total blood glucose, as well as peak insulin and total insulin compared with placebo in healthy individuals in the two-hour period following eating, both with statistical significance. This data and the trial protocol was also published in PLOS One and TRIALS Journals respectively (to download the papers, click on the images below). These findings were corroborated in a second clinical study run by the University of Oxford Brookes Functional Food Centre, with the data remaining undisclosed pending publication.
