1.5 million deaths in 2019 because of diabetes (source: WHO).
A healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight are ways to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Chicory root fibre is a non-digestible carbohydrate (or dietary fibre) and thus doesn’t affect blood glucose levels after consumption. This soluble fibre can be used to control certain blood sugar management problems, in particular by limiting the daily effects of our everyday diet.
It may even improve glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, thanks to some metabolites that are formed upon fermentation of chicory root fibre in the large intestine. Over the long term, it can also contribute to lowering the risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. FIBRULINE™ chicory root fibre can be used to substitute digestible carbohydrates. Thanks to its non-digestibility in the small intestine, FIBRULINE™ has no impact on post-meal glycaemia and insulin responses.
