 Will a Loaf of Oat-packed Bread Serve the Purpose to Fight Diabetes?
Scottish researchers at Aberdeen University are studying whether eating oat-packed bread can help control blood sugar levels, and in turn tackle diabetes.

For the purpose of their study, the researchers approached Macphie of Glenbervie, the Aberdeenshire-based food ingredients maker, and JG Ross Bakers in Inverurie.

The bread, which will be available in JG Ross shops this week, will be eaten by the study's subjects.

"Our initial testing of the bread indicates that it is very palatable," the Scotsman quoted Dr. Alex Johnstone, a researcher associated with the project, as saying.

According to him, the study would examine whether the bread "could delay the need for people with type 2 diabetes to start taking tablets or insulin to control their blood sugar".
