June 22, 2018. Orlando, FL – Ascensia Diabetes Care today announced Whisk, the world’s smartest food platform, has been selected as the winner of the global Ascensia Diabetes Challenge during the American Diabetes Association’s 78th Scientific Sessions in Orlando, FL.
Whisk’s smart food platform creates smarter food experiences that help users make healthy, informed decisions by enabling them to select recipes based on the many factors that influence behaviour, including their personal taste preferences, time constraints, budgets and dietary restrictions or allergies. The platform analyses and connects millions of data points using AI and deep learning to understand user preference and make smarter, healthier recommendations, making it easy to find and trust the best, nutritionally tailored recipe and then shop for the ingredients in-store or online.
Whisk’s solution was selected from 116 entries that were submitted to the challenge from 25 countries. The platform will expand into the management of type 2 diabetes and will provide personalised nutritional support. Whisk will receive €100,000 to build and pilot the new functionality for people with type 2 diabetes, and will work closely with Ascensia Diabetes Care to bring it to patients.
