A new drink promises dieters to keep them feeling full for hours without hunger pangs. The drink was tested among 23 volunteers who experienced 30 percent less hunger 5 hours after drinking it.
The drink contains a dietary fiber named alginate, which is strongly gelling. "The drink was designed in such a way that it only gels under gastric conditions and not in the product before consumption," one of the developers explained.
The chocolate-flavored drink contains 190 calories per 325ml.
The study was conducted at the Unilever Research & Development in Vlaardingen in the Netherlands.
