Phynova Group Ltd announces a new strategic partnership with Singapore-based Nutraconnect Pte,
Ltd. to introduce its innovative, scientifically backed nutraceutical ingredient Reducose® to critical
markets in Asia namely Indonesia & Thailand. This strategic partnership will also aim to take Reducose

Reducose® turns fast sugars and other carbohydrates into slow ones. It empowers consumers to take
back control of their blood sugar fluctuations in response to foods. Reducose® is a patented functional
ingredient, that is a water extract of white mulberry leaves. It can easily be incorporated into a wide
range of foods and drinks or be used in dietary supplements.

containing sugars and other carbohydrates. Reducose® has also been shown to lower the amount of
insulin our bodies need to make, and Reducose® will decrease the Glycaemic Index (GI) of common
Blood sugar management is a major health benefit of concern for healthy people who actively seek to
manage their energy, concentration, weight and lifestyle. Blood sugar management is also critical for
people who live with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Diabetes is now a disease of major concern both
globally and in APAC and is a leading cause of death in most countries. In 2021, the International
Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimated that ∼537 million people had diabetes worldwide, and by 2030,
this is predicted to rise to 643 million. Eighty percent live in low- and middle-income countries, and of
the total, more than 60% live in Asia, with almost one-third in China.
