Frucor Suntory continues to support Diabetes New Zealand by donating 400 units of 250ml Just Juice Splash with Spring Water.
Diabetes NZ will use the packs in Hypo Kits provided to hospital diabetes teams, who distribute them to those who have just been diagnosed or admitted to hospital with Type 1 diabetes.
Just Juice Splash with Spring Water Tropical and Orange & Mango flavours (250ml) contain the right amount of sugar to help those with Type 1 diabetes manage low blood sugar levels (BSLs).
Frucor Suntory has been working with Diabetes NZ since 2019.
Diabetes NZ Chief Executive, Heather Verry describes the Hypo Kits as a fantastic reference tool for newly diagnosed diabetics.
“We include Just Juice Splash with Spring Water in the Hypo Kits because they contain the right amount of natural sugar to help elevate low blood sugar levels.
“Just Juice Splash with Spring Water is particularly popular with parents and children as the packs are lightweight and can be stored discreetly, allowing children to use them at school and during sport without having to stop participating to correct their BSLs.
“Parents and children tell us these fruit drinks bring assurance and trust that they will be able to quickly correct their BSLs.”
Scientific & Regulatory Affairs Manager, Dr. Lesley Stevenson adds: “We are delighted to work with Diabetes NZ, who do fantastic work in the community.”
