    Objectives: This study evaluated the effects of a fiber-rich nutritional supplement on postprandial glycemic response and lipid parameters in overweight adults with and without impaired fasting glucose (IFG) in India.

Methods: This was a randomized, double-blind, single-center study including 96 subjects. Among them, 26 subjects had IFG (100-125 mg/dL). After an overnight fast and a high-fat standardized breakfast, subjects were stratified according to IFG status and randomized to a fiber-rich drink or an energy-matched non-fiber control drink.
