The School of Food and Nutrition, Massey University is conducting a study looking at blood glucose response to antioxidant-rich food extracts in people living or near Auckland, New Zealand.
If you participate in this study we will ask you to drink a sugary drink along with three different antioxidant-rich foods. We will see if these foods help you in controlling your blood sugar levels. You will need to visit Massey University Nutrition Laboratory in Albany, Auckland five times during an 8-10 week period (FOUR of the FIVE visits will require blood samples to be taken to measure your blood sugar level).
You will receive $210 (for total of five visits), free breakfast for four of the five visits and free body composition and blood glucose.
You have been chosen to participate in the study because you have met the criteria to be included in the study. The criteria includes:
• A high blood sugar level (known as prediabetes), (HbA1c between 41-49 mmol/mol) - diagnosed by a doctor
• A body mass index (BMI) in range of 20-35 kg/m2
• Not being on medication that influences blood sugar levels.
• Able to speak and read English
