Singapore research centre seeks to make bread that cuts blood sugar

29 January 2014

Foodnavigator-asia (29-Jan-2014) reports that the Singapore government’s scientific agency has joined forces with a university in a US$20m joint-venture to develop a variety of bread that will reduce blood sugar, among other research projects.

The Clinical Nutritional Research Centre will conduct nutritional studies to understand the causes of metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, and find ways to reduce appetites and control body weight.

One research project on the new centre’s agenda will be finding the formula for a bread that could help cut blood sugar levels. The research programme aims to understand how the structure of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in food can influence metabolic outcomes, such as glycemia, lipidemia and amino acid excursions, when composite foods are ingested.
