*Health Claim laut Europäischer Lebensmittelsicherheitsbehörde (EFSA)
The konjac plant (Amorphophallus konjac) is the starting product for Organic Konjac Glucomannan satiety powder. Konjac flour is obtained from the ground, dried rootstock of the konjac plant. This flour contains particularly high levels of glucomannan (approx. 40%), the key ingredient of the satiety powder. An extract, containing at least 85% glucomannan, is obtained through a natural manufacturing process. The high level of glucomannan is key in guaranteeing that the powder is effective.
Glucomannan has one of the highest known water absorption capacities of all natural products, with the ability to absorb water up to 100 times its net weight. This is also why it is used in diet products. Konjac extract containing high levels of glucomannan is usually dissolved in water and drunk before a meal. Glucomannan’s ability to absorb substantial amounts of water causes the water in the stomach to “thicken”. It produces a highly viscous liquid, which will make you feel full for long periods.
This positive effect can only be achieved by taking 3g of glucomannan in three doses of 1g with 1-2 glasses of water before meals every day as part of a low-calorie diet.
The level of swellable dietary fibre means that there is risk of suffocation if you do not drink sufficient water, especially if you have difficulty swallowing. We recommend taking the product with large amounts of water.
Organic Konjac Glucomannan satiety powder can aid weight loss and is tasteless.
