Ingredia Nutritional has released DietSpice, a functional spice that adds flavor to carb-rich meals while also lowering its caloric impact. When sprinkled on starchy foods, DietSpice reduces the glycemic index. According to the company, one stick of DiestSpice provides the recommended intake of StarchLite, a patented, all-natural extract of white bean shown to be a temporary inhibitor of alpha-amylase—the enzyme responsible for starch breakdown into simple sugars. The inhibition of alpha-amylase decreases the digestion and absorption of starch, therefore reducing its caloric impact. For further information:
