India is the diabetic capital of the world, -with approximately 6% of the population being diabetic and 1 in 3 Indians being pre-diabetic. Inspired by a personal tragedy when the mother of one of our founders was diagnosed with diabetes, we felt we needed to do something to help change this. After intensive research we found that one of the major reasons for diabetes was the Indian diet. And to make a major impact we had to address the problem at the center of the plate. Hence in 2018, we came together to develop and market Sugar Watchers, a brand of Low GI staples.
