Developing foods with proven health benefits

 

The Smarter Food Company has been established to develop foods with proven health benefits. Our food products use a proprietary variety of broccoli that has a high level of a naturally occurring compound, glucoraphanin. Our first product, currently under development, is a soup that could provide health benefits to those at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) by reducing elevated blood glucose to normal levels, by consuming one portion of soup per week.We are undertaking further clinical trials to confirm the data we already have with the aim of securing health claims from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and other regulatory bodies around the world.

 

In addition to the data linking glucoraphanin to possible blood glucose reduction, there is also research to suggest that glucoraphanin can reduce cholesterol and may have a beneficial impact on heart disease and various cancers, including prostate cancer.
