Alchemy Foodtech is a deep technology food startup supported by SPRING Singapore’s prestigious TECS Research Grant. By combining foodtech, biotech and medtech into everyday foods we eat, we aim to make everyday food staples lower in GI so they will not spike blood glucose levels dangerously.
Our patent-pending glycemic lowering composition lowers the GI of high GI foods to medium or low GI, and is dosage-dependent. We work with food manufacturers to incorporate our technologies into their products. The first food category we addressed is Refined White Jasmine & Japanese rice, the main diabetes culprit in Asia, and have extended Diabetec® into breads and noodles. We believe the ideal healthcare system to diabetes is one that doesn't let you get it in the first place.
