DSM’s Fabuless® proven to promote body fat mass reduction under weight loss conditions

A new study published in the European Journal of Nutrition2 confirms that DSM Nutritional Products’ weight management ingredient Fabuless1 exerts beneficial effects, even under weight loss conditions. Subjects taking the natural, vegetable oil derived supplement experienced a higher reduction in body fat mass than those who took a dairy fat control. The findings complement those of a previous long -term study which demonstrated that Fabuless helps to minimize weight regain after dieting. With the global weight loss market projected to exceed $586 billion by 20143, these results will be welcomed by manufacturers looking to provide safe, natural and effective weight management solutions. 

The randomized, controlled, double-blind study with 43 overweight females examined the weight control effect of Fabuless. After a six week calorie-controlled weight loss program and a twelveweek single meal replacement plan, test subjects supplemented by Fabuless lost a significant 0.9% more body fat compared to control group subjects (p<0.05). This difference corresponds to a mean reduction of ~0.7 kilograms in body fat mass. 

We are delighted that these findings confirm once more that Fabuless has positive effects in weight management and appetite control,” commented Philip Rijken, Head of Nutritional Science Europe and Asia Pacific at DSM Nutritional products. “These results add to the now extensive science base supporting Fabuless from an efficacy and mode of action perspective and prove our ability to produce effective and commercially viable products for the weight management market. Combined with other exciting recent scientific findings, this will increase scientific and customer interest in Fabuless.”

Fabuless is a proprietary emulsion, derived from all-natural vegetable oils. Fabuless works in harmony with the body’s regulatory mechanism to control appetite. The product can be consumed on its own or in a variety of applications, such as dairy products, meal replacement drinks and supplement sachets.
