Single-serve aseptically packaged Silhouette Active from French dairy producer Candia, contains a patent-protected combination of oat and palm oils that has been formulated into a stable emulsion. Its microstructure prevents digestion of the palm oil droplets until relatively deep in the small intestine. Undigested fat arriving in the ileum (the latter part of the small intestine) triggers an “appetite satisfied” signal to the brain.
Olivier Cousin, R&D director at Candia, says, “Over half the French population actively monitor their weight, but controlling appetite is not easy. Silhouette Active comes in a convenient carton with optional straw - perfect for on-the-go consumers who want to regulate food intake without interrupting their lifestyles. One carton provides an ideal drink, or the perfect amount to use on a bowl of cereal.”
