November 14th is ‘World Diabetes Day’. Diabetes is becoming an emerging issue in the world. In 2017 approximately 425 million adults (20-79 years) were living with diabetes and 352 million people were at risk (IDF). Type 2 diabetes is accounting for 90% of all diabetes cases, as a result of rising levels of obesity, physical inactivity and poor diet. The greatest number of people with diabetes are based in China, India and the USA (WHO).
A global consumer insight research from FMCG Gurus shows that majority of the diabetic are challenged to fundamentally change their lifestyles. FrieslandCampina research shows that Chinese diabetics are most appealed by nutritional solutions, close to normal food, to manage diabetes compared to medicine.
