With some energy drinks known for containing high sugar and caffeine content, companies are increasingly seeking to formulate healthier options by using botanicals and low glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates.
A high protein-low GI diet prevented hunger better than a moderate protein-moderate GI diet among overweight and obese people, according to data derived from the 3-year PREVIEW randomised intervention study.
Seafood giant Thai Union has revealed how it is looking to broaden its healthier products portfolio including ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, on the back of significant investment in Singapore low-GI firm Alchemy Foodtech.
Malaysia-based and Australia-listed food tech firm Holista Colltech has set its sights on marketing its low-GI bread premix in several APAC markets after a successful partnership in the United States with bakery manufacturer Costanzo’s.
Singaporean start-up Alchemy Foodtech has moved its proprietary glycaemic index-lowering technology a step further with the opening of a dedicated laboratory, as well as new pilot partnerships with food manufacturers.
