At Health Ingredients Europe, the Dow Chemical Company introduced Satisfit, a new weight management ingredient this week, which it claims has been shown to block the absorption of saturated and trans-fats in pre-clinical trials.

    Satisfit is an emulsifier derived from plant-based which the company says has been shown to reduce weight gain and fatty liver deposits in very high fat diets fed to hamsters.

    It has been developed by the Dow Chemical Company in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Service of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the company says it is now looking for research development partners to take Satisfit into clinical trials on people.
