Diabetes care: Roquette offers food formulators the easiest sugar-like sweetening solution for managing blood glucose with indulgence.
It is aimed at the health-conscious who want to manage their blood glucose without sacrificing eating pleasure.
According to the World Health Oganization (WHO), diabetic sufferers worldwide in 2040 will reach 640 million, in other words, a 50% increase over 2015. Diabetes is an especially common problem in older adults. More than 25% of the U.S. population aged 65 or over has diabetes, and the aging of the overall population is a significant driver of the diabetes epidemic. Older patients may be more vulnerable to most of the diabetes-related complications since the latter arise in them at an accelerated rate.
