Ingredia has now been granted the New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) registration for Pep2Dia®!
Special thanks to Sylvanie Seret and our experts, who guided us throughout the process.
What is Pep2Dia®?
Pep2Dia® is a patented whey protein hydrolysate containing an active dipeptide AP, designed for people willing to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Among them are glucose intolerant or prediabetic people, a healthy population with glycaemia levels irregularly above normal and with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The peptide AP acts as an inhibitor of the α-glucosidase, thus lowers glucose absorption into the blood stream.
Pep2Dia®’s safety validated by NDI registration
Pep2Dia®’s toxicity was evaluated, both acutely (dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight) and sub chronically (90 days at dose levels up to 1000mg/kg body weight/day). In both studies, no toxicological effects were observed.
Previously, Pep2Dia® had proven its efficacy in clinical studies (2019) in glucose intolerant volunteers, at a dose of 1400 mg to be taken daily before lunch for 6 weeks as a supplement. It has successfully decreased their glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level. Pep2Dia® thus lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
More news for Pep2Dia®
Our most recent clinical study (2020) proves Pep2Dia®’s efficacy at a dose of 700 mg before meals, on glucose intolerant people.
The future of type 2 diabetes market
In 2019, 375 million people worldwide were at risk of getting type 2 diabetes. 80% of those prediabetic people will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 to 10 years if nothing is done .
In the US, about 88 million adults had prediabetes in 2018 with 67% of them being 45 or older.
Only 15.3% of them were aware of it and according to Centers for Diseases Control, the percentage who had ever been told by a health care professional that they had prediabetes has doubled over the 2005-2016 period .
Knowing prediabetes is a reversible state, this high prevalence makes prevention all the more crucial.
