Almond nutrition research outreach continues to move forward
throughout the world. Recent market research undertaken in India has shown that type 2 diabetes is a big concern in this market, which aligns well with Almond Board of California’s research priorities.
Ongoing research in this area includes a study recently completed by Drs. Seema Gulati and Anoop Misra to assess the influence of almond intake on heart disease risk factors in Indian patients with type 2 diabetes. Preliminary results were shared at a scientific national meeting of the Indian Dietetic Association held in Hyderabad, India, last November, with more than 1,000 in attendance. More information about the results of this study will be available upon publication.
