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.
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
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 wth 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, a-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.
