18 July 2013 - Nutraingredients - Food industry has important role in preventing cognitive decline and diabetes risk, warns expert

By Nathan Gray

The food industry must continue to innovate new food products that help consumers with pre-diabetes and glucose intolerance to reverse their long term risk of diabetes and dementia, according to Professor Louise Dye.

Speaking at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Expo in the USA, Professor Dye presented research linking impaired glucose intolerance in pre0diabetics to reduced cognitive performances - warning that these early signs of diabetes and reduced brain functioning are 'like a ticking bomb' that needs to be reversed.
