Weight management Fabuless now available in US market
The weight-management ingredient by New Jersey-based DSM Nutritional Products is designed to boost satiety, so dieters can control their caloric intakes. Fabuless' effects have been proven by five clinical studies upon its launch in the European market; it is now being brought to the US market. The ingredient was developed especially for use in dairy products. An oil-in-water emulsion, it consists of a minimal amount of palm and oat oils. The specific oat fraction digests slowly, allowing Fabuless to penetrate deeply into the intestinal system. The body identifies a relatively high level of undigested fat at a relatively late stage of the digestive process and then suppresses hunger signals, DSM explains.
