LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SOHO Flordis International (SFI), a leading manufacturer and provider of clinically proven natural health medicines, announced today that its patented fat binding complexor, FBCx, will now be available as an ingredient for the first time.
“This makes FBCx especially interesting for the rapidly growing market of healthy beverages.”
FBCx is clinically proven to help people safely lose up to 5 pounds a month or 500 calories per day while contributing to heart health. This will be the first time that the product will be offered as an ingredient.
“We are very excited about the potential uses for FBCx,” said Jeff McHarg, General Manager of SFI North America. “This clinically proven fat binder is set to revolutionize the weight loss industry. Imagine enjoying all the taste of your favorite foods with 25-30% fewer calories from fat!”
FBCx has also been proven to reduce triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels in the blood as well as improving insulin sensitivity without side effects. This has the potential to improve overall health for users of the product.
FBCx is a readily soluble dietary fiber with a viscosity similar to that of sucrose. As an ingredient, FBCx is a patented weight loss functional food, nutraceutical and nutritional supplement ingredient. In the past, adding fiber ingredients to food or beverages frequently caused problems. High viscosity, poor stability, taste problems, discoloration or loss of texture are among the issues encountered when using fiber. With FBCx, these issues no longer stand in the way.
“FBCx solutions are haze-free, colorless and odorless, and have a low viscosity and a neutral taste,” said McHarg. “This makes FBCx especially interesting for the rapidly growing market of healthy beverages.”
Studies have shown that FBCx binds nine times its weight to fat (highly superior to the 1:1 ratio that is typical for dietary fibers). The active ingredient, α-cyclodextrin, is a natural non-digestible dietary fiber. The fiber forms a bond around fat molecules, and then safely removes them from the body before they can be absorbed, without side effects. FBCx taken three times a day with meals or snacks, can eliminate 500 calories per day, or 3,500 calories from per week.
