Bangalore, November 14th, 2016: Britannia NutriChoice Essentials in partnership with The Diabetic Food Trail hosted the Britannia NutriChoice Essentials Diabetic Masterclass yesterday that provided city’s food lovers with a preview to easy Diabetes management, while enjoying healthy food without compromising on taste. This was the last leg in the series of the Masterclasses being conducted as a run-up to the World Diabetes Day on 14th November 2016.
Diabetes is posing a serious lifestyle challenge needing immediate attention and this initiative is committed to building awareness for diabetes prevention, management and making healthy yet tasty food choices. The core of Britannia’s philosophy is “Eat Healthy, Think Better” and taking this proposition forward we were the frontrunners in making biscuits with different grains, such as Oats, Ragi, and Multi-grain etc. The insights we received after speaking to many diabetics, caregivers, doctors, nutritionists, is that there were not enough food options for the diabetic population. This is why, we have invested into products such as Britannia NutriChoice Essentials, and are partnering with initiatives such as the Diabetic Food Trail. It’s a small step in the direction of making India more diabetic friendly.
The Britannia NutriChoice Essentials Masterclass enabled diabetics to recognize the importance ofeating nutritious and well-balanced meals with a regular fitness routine for effective diabetes management, besides learning to read packaging labels and ingredient’s nutritional values through an interactive session with a renowned nutritionist Geeta G.H. , there were present Chef Jinnendra from Smally’s, Bangalore who crafted No Bake Muesli Cheesecake with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies, Twisted Ragi Choco Cake with NutriChoice Essentials Ragi Cookies, and Celebrity Chef Irfan Pabaney from Sassy Spoon, Mumbai who made Curried Quinoa salad, roasted pumpkin and brown rice risotto and Chef Tamil from Anjappar, Bangalore, who made Drumstick Soup and Bitter Gourd Poondu Kulambu. They weaved their culinary expertise into crafting mouth-watering yet healthy food options spanning in the insightful Masterclass. This was aimed at busting the myth that diabetic food is bland and boring, audience was informed of each recipe’s caloric & nutritional value including that of the dessert.
Ali Harris Shere, Vice President - Marketing, Britannia Industries Ltd., “India is known as the Diabetes Capital of the world and ranks 2nd after China with 70 million people living with diabetes.NutriChoice Essentials can play a vital role in dietary management by catering to the in-between meal needs of the diabetic population.

We are happy to be associated with the 2nd season of the 'Diabetic Food Trail' which is an excellent initiative to help diabetics be better equipped in managing the condition through changes in lifestyle and diet."
The Diabetic Food Trail is an exciting initiative spread across 5 cities and 225 restaurants.

 From My side:
Diabetic a common word which heard from every family,  Mainly Why this happen? Which affects the System to fall in this common disease, I was invited to attend a Event “Diabetic Food Trial” Coordinated By Seema, founder of “Semora”.. Most of my friends, having an back history of diabetic. Even i too having a sad story behind the screen, nowadays its been a hereditary one. When Seema told ‘Our vision is to see a healthy diabetic friendly menu served in every restaurants in India, so people with diabetes can make an informed choice about what to eat’.
I’m having a hereditary history of Diabetic in our family, so I’m very cautious in choosing food after my pregnancy, and our generation have the chance to trace this diabetic in early 30’s.. Nutria Choice Essentials are doing a wonderful part with this awareness, There Ragi cookies and Oat cookies are the best one, when they gave a intro about this super hero of the Event “Don’t have Nutrichoice as a Substitute food” Just have a one or two when in need.
