Carpediem House

Health Care

The venture aims to enable diabetics to have more food options and allow them to enjoy the pleasure that food brings. It hosts a series of dessert workshops to share with diabetics how to make delicious desserts with sugar substitutes. Using sugar substitutes can reduce diabetics’ dependence on products such as white sugar and cane sugar. The venture hopes that diabetics can make desserts for themselves after mastering baking skills. This would provide them with more affordable and healthier food choices, also allowing them to share with others the happiness of tasting sweets.
