Glucose Health, Inc. conceived of manufacturing a healthy or functional tea beverage for the emerging diabetic-friendly consumer product category, in 2013. A proprietary tea-based formula, including extracts of green and white teas, extracts of cinnamon tree bark, whole blueberry fruit powder, chromium picolinate, vitamin C, soluble dietary fiber and other ingredients, was developed for Glucose Health, Inc. by Dr. Chandrasekhar Mallangi. For 25 years Dr. Mallangi managed the Nestle USA nutrition product development team, which was responsible for introducing many household product names, such as Carnation Instant Breakfast. Today, Glucose Health® Original Blueberry Tea is available at Walmart stores in all 50 States and Walmart.com and three new functional tea beverage products, Lemon, Peach and Raspberry iced tea mixes, are now in development.
According to The National Diabetes Statistics Report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 29 million Americans currently have diabetes - and one in three - more than 86 million Americans - are pre-diabetic. Diabetes touches virtually every American family and today in 2017, a myriad of diabetic-friendly products have been introduced to serve consumers in this rapidly-growing market category. According to Euromonitor, the world's leading market research firm, the highest-growth beverage industry category, through the year 2020, is healthy or functional tea beverages. The CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of functional tea beverages is forecast by Euromonitor to be 10.1%. Accordingly, the Glucose Health, Inc. corporate mission is to "manufacture innovative functional tea beverages for the diabetic-friendly consumer product category".
