There is evidence to suggest that Mycoprotein may be useful in the management of obesity and type 2 diabetes as it appears to show beneficial effects on glycaemia (glucose in the blood) and insulinaemia (insulin in the blood). This is discussed in the Mycoprotein and Glycaemic Response section. In this section you can download some of the published papers.
