Introducing Solathin potato protein.

 

Cyvex Nutrition (Irvine, CA) has announced the launch of its Solathin potato protein ingredient for satiety and weight control. Solathin contains over 90% protein, including protease inhibitor PI-2.

“PI-2 enables the release of cholecystokinin (CKK), a naturally occurring peptide clinically shown to produce a feeling of gastric fullness, and thus can help reduce food consumption up to 20 percent in reported results,” says Cyvex Nutrition.

The company claims that, compared to other PI-2 ingredients, Solathin’s high protein content allows for further increases of satiety.

“With approximately 60 million U.S. adults considered to be overweight, SolaThin provides manufacturers with 20 years of university-affiliated research that confirms its ability to safely promote weight loss with no observable side effects,” said Matt Phillips, president and CEO of Cyvex Nutrition. “SolaThin's nutritional makeup provides a superior, vegetable-based protein source to further curb appetite without the use of weight loss stimulants.”
