Under conditions of digital economy, in particular, agriculture and food industry, specialized food products, including biologically active food supplements produced from natural raw materials, are increasingly used to improve nutrition and health, and to maintain quality of life. These products are affordable and efficient in coping with metabolism disorders caused by different diseases. Taking all these factors into account the authors developed a pant-based food supplement aimed at improving metabolism of people with type 2 diabetes. The composition of this specialized product is scientifically based in terms of its ingredients and their active substances biochemical and synergetic properties. The innovative production technology of this biologically active food supplement involves pressing its main ingredients and auxiliary substances into tablets. The tablet form provides accurate dosage, convenient packaging and storage, reliable film coating, which ensures tablet hardness and protection from aggressive exposure. The food supplement properties have been determined, including its nutritional value and functional properties. One tablet includes: ascorbic acid – 8.6 mg, chromium -0.1mg, zinc – 2.3 mg, flavonoids – 10mg, tannins – 20 mg, manganese – 0.8mg. Clinical trials proved the supplement efficacy and functional properties. People with type 2 diabetes took 1 tablet of phyto-complex twice a day alongside sugar-lowering drugs. After one month they demonstrated lower levels of blood glucose, total cholesterol and triglycerides as well as better overall health and lower body mass index. The obtained data clearly indicate better pancreas functions, improved microcirculation, carbohydrate and fat metabolism normalizing. The article also provides recommendations of the supplement intake for people with type 2 diabetes and glucose tolerance disorders.
