FBCx Set to Revolutionize The Food and Supplement Industry
SOHO Flordis Unveils New Fat Binder As Ingredient at SupplySide West
October 31, Las Vegas – SOHO Flordis International (SFI), a leading global manufacturer and provider of clinically proven natural health medicines, announced today that its patented fat binding complexor, FBCx, will now, for the first time, be available as an ingredient for foods, as well as supplements, with access to patented weight loss claims.
FBCx has been on the market as a supplement and clinically proven to help people safely lose up to 5 pounds a month when taken regularly. 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 SFI North America. “This clinically proven fat binder is set to revolutionize the food 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. 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.”
FBCx is well suited for carbonated and non-carbonated transparent soft drinks. It can also be used for a variety of other food products such as baked goods, dairy products and cereals.
Laboratory 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 molecule derived from grain. The fiber forms a bond around fat molecules, and then safely removes them from the body before they can be absorbed, without messy side effects. FBCx taken three times a day with meals or snacks, can eliminate up to 500 calories per day, or 3,500 calories from per week.
Clinical trials have shown that FBCx is safe and well tolerated. Participants in the trials have been able to lose weight from taking FBCx as well as demonstrating other metabolic benefits.
“We are excited to be launching this exciting new product at SupplySide West,” said McHarg of SFI. “For manufacturers looking for an edge in the ever-increasing diet and weight loss food and supplement categories, we offer a safe, natural and clinically proven solution.”
