Whey proteins for type 2 diabetes
Several clinical studies indicate that a high intake of milk and dairy products reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. A possible protective mechanism has been ascribed to the protein fraction.
Whey proteins help improve blood glucose control in type 2 diabetics by inducing insulin secretion and acutely reducing postprandial blood glucose excursions. Importantly, long-term intake of whey protein has been demonstrated to lower fasting insulin levels and reduce insulin resistance.
Arla Foods Ingredients provides high quality, whey proteins under the Lacprodan® brand name. The range includes whey protein isolates, concentrates and hydrolysates.
