Carmit Debuts Weight Management Bar
Tel Aviv, Israel — Carmit Candy Industries Ltd. is unveiling Weight Management Chocolate Wafer Bars blended with glucomannan and Kemin Industries, Inc.’s proteinase inhibitor, Slendesta, which induces satiety, the company claims.
“When ingested with a glass of water, glucomannan forms a gel in the stomach, leading to slower gastric emptying and a feeling of fullness over a long duration,” Carmit reports. “Slendesta increases the release of cholecystokinin, a hormone that signals to the brain food has been eaten, and in turn helps to trigger feelings of fullness and satisfaction.”
The GMO- and gluten-free item is kosher and has 99 calories per serving.
