A recipe for a diabetic cookie is required - a low glycemic index (GI), low calorie cookie.
The cookie should provide a taste and mouth feel experience directly comparable to a conventional non-diabetic cookie.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
Consumers are seeking healthier alternatives to snack foods yet expect similar taste and texture. We are interested in the production of a low glycemic index (GI), low fat cookie for persons with diabetes. A solution to this challenge would benefit those who are unable to eat cookies produced with ordinary ingredients.
The formulation must have a low GI (around 45), a fat content of around 12%, have no added sugar, and contain around400 kCal / gram. Preferably it should be low in saturated fats and be rich in fiber content (around 10%). The formulation should produce a cookie with a texture and taste similar in quality to that of a normal cookie.
This is an Ideation Challenge, which has the following unique features:
After the Challenge deadline, the Seeker will complete the review process and make a decision with regards to the Winning Solution(s).All Solvers that submitted a proposal will be notified on the status of their submissions; however, no detailed evaluation of individual submissions will be provided.
What is an InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge?
An InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge is a broad question formulated to obtain access to new ideas, similar to a global brainstorm for producing a breakthrough idea or market survey which may include ideas for a new product line, a new commercial application for a current product, or even a viral marketing idea to recruit new customers. Ideation™ Challenge submissions are typically about two written pages, and Seekers receive a non-exclusive, perpetual license to use all submissions.
In an Ideation™ Challenge, Solvers may:
Solvers should not reveal any confidential information in their submissions. Often the Ideation™ Challenge will be followed by one or more of the other three Challenge types to further develop the ideas and gain Intellectual Property protection when the concept has been well-defined.
