Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is highly prevalent on a global scale causing 1.5 million deaths in 2012 alone. Although medicinal products exist, changes in lifestyle and diet are known to regulate insulin in affected individuals. Amongst many of its benefits, the cereal crop pearl millet is known to be rich in starch and essential amino acids that are directly involved in the pathways which confer insulin resistance and, therefore, has a direct role in the management of diabetes. We are exploring genetic variation of starches and amino acids in pearl millet germplasm accessions to develop superior pearl millet cultivars that are both high yielding and have characteristics that provide better control over blood sugar. Availability of such grains, and food products made of such grains, will provide better glycaemic control benefits to both the growers as well as to consumers.
