New study suggests
blueberries can help
with type 2 diabetes
A new study conducted
at the Stratton Veterans
Affairs Medical
Center in Albany, N.Y.,
found that one cup
of fresh blueberries
resulted in significant
improvements in
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)
and fructosamine-
measurable indicators
of type 2 diabetes.
The two indicators
measure glycemic
control in those living
with diabetes with HbA1c

levels over two-to-threeweek periods.
Over an eight-week
period the study
examined 52 overweight
male participants
between the ages of 51
and 75 who had been
diagnosed with type
2 diabetes for at least
six months. Through
the course of the study
all participants were
prescribed non-insulin
diabetes medications and
did no heavy exercise.
Participants were
either assigned 22 g of
freeze-dried blueberries
(the equivalent of
one U.S. cup/d fresh
blueberries) along with
their regular diet; or 22
g of a placebo powder

placebo. Left untreated
or uncontrolled, elevated
blood triglyceride levels
increase the risk of
serious complications
such as cardiovascular
disease - the leading
cause of morbidity and
mortality for individuals
with diabetes.
"To date few human
clinical trials have
evaluated the potential
beneficial health
effects of blueberries
in populations with
type 2 diabetes," said
Kim Stote, who has a
research appointment at
the Albany Stratton VA
Medical Center and is the
study's lead investigator.

Nielsen announced
a new Retail Pricing
Analytics application
tool available on Nielsen
Global Connect. The tool
uses artificial intelligence
modules to help
retailers enact, adjust
and track pricing and
promotion strategies.
The coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic
has driven inflation
across 80% of Nielsen's
measured product
categories in the
United States. The new
pricing tool provides
summaries of the impact
of implemented changes
on overall categories
and provides data on
item performance.
Through one portal
the new analytics tool
tracks and segments
pricing by market,
defines key value items
for price adjustment
opportunities,
implements and
manages in-market

execution and quantifies
return on invest from
everyday price changes
and promotions.
"Price and promotion
are the largest drivers
of store choice among
consumers, according
to Nielsen's Store
Choice Drivers Survey,
yet retailers continue
to make price and
promotion changes
based on incomplete
data from costly, slow
and incomplete audits of
competitive strategies,"
said Morgan Seybert,
managing director of US
Analytics for Nielsen.
"Retail Pricing
Analytics differentiates
itself from the market
through easy-to-use
software that solves the
complete end-to-end
pricing process-from
strategy to execution
to in-market tracking.
We are using the
power of the Nielsen
Connect platform to
provide retailers with
the essential intelligence
and analytics to identify,
predict and activate on
key business decisions,
and help them scale
their decision-making
with their suppliers."
