How sharing my glucose responses impact society?
The persistence of an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes suggests that new nutritional strategies are needed if the epidemic is to be overcome. Numerous studies have shown that eating foods low in glycemic induce a number of favorable metabolic effects, such as a rapid weight loss, decrease of fasting glucose and insulin levels.
Today the majority of marketing messages used by large manufacturers are misleading and easily misinterpreted by consumers (the health-halo effect). For example: Naked Juice is portrayed as a healthy product, claimed “No Sugar Added”, but the fact is fibers had been removed and the juice has a high concentration of fructose (sugar), far exceeding the recommended daily sugar consumption, especially for women and children.
By showing the pattern of blood glucose responses to different foods, consumers are shown with the evidence of the healthiness claims and can make better-informed decisions on purchasing the right food products.
