We believe that good carbs should be a welcome guest at every Australian table.
But not all carbs are created equal.
Low GI carbs give you steady energy and help you feel fuller for longer whereas high GI carbs make your blood glucose levels peak and crash, leaving you feeling flat and reaching for that naughty snack after meals. This is the “blood sugar roller coaster” that many people are familiar with.
High blood glucose levels overtime can lead to lifestyle related disease such as Type 2 diabetes, a major health issue worldwide.
Here in Australia, every five minutes someone develops diabetes. There are currently 1.1 million Australians currently living with Type 2 diabetes and an estimated 2 million at high risk of developing it, showing early signs of the condition. Scary right?
The good news is that high-level scientific evidence proves following a low GI diet helps to manage and prevent health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. A healthy low GI diet benefits everybody – and is easy to follow.
And that’s why we started GiLICIOUS, to use proven science to improve Australia’s health.
We are the world’s first profit-for-purpose food brand dedicated to preventing Type 2 diabetes and obesity.
We will improve the health of all Australians by not only putting a range of better carbs on supermarket shelves but also funding diabetes education and prevention programs.
Through GiLICIOUS we aim to help prevent Type 2 diabetes in more than a quarter of a million Australians in just five years.
All GiLICIOUS products will be certified low or lower GI and recommended by Diabetes Qualified, Australia’s leading provider of diabetes education and resources for health professionals.
