A recent study by Henry et al has compared a low glycaemic diet – that included BENEO’s functional carbohydrate Palatinose™ – with a high glycaemic diet, in a real-life scenario. The results have shown that participants who followed the low glycaemic profile diet experienced three main improvements: a lower glycaemic profile, reduced variability in blood sugar levels and improved fat burning.
Professor Christiani Jeyakumar Henry et al’s study was carried out at the Clinical Nutrition Research Centre (CNRC), Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences (SICS), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the National University Health System, Centre for Translational Medicine. Twenty-four hour continuous blood sugar monitoring was conducted with 20 men. Participants were on two dietary treatments (low and high glycaemic) in a randomised, double blind, controlled cross-over design. In addition, the participants’ energy expenditure and metabolism was measured. Overall, the trials covered a time period of 42 hours to represent a normal day-to-day situation.
