Big Food Companies Fund Scientists Developing Appetite-Suppressing Gel

January 19, 2010: 08:38 PM EST
British scientists have come up with a water-soluble compound that solidifies in the stomach and helps curb appetite. According to this Guardian article, the appetite-suppressing goo is designed for those who tend to binge eat. The aqueous solution is a hydrocolloid made from natural polymers. The new product, which might someday be mixed with milk and poured over cereal or blended into an energy drink, comes from a project financed by food giant Unilever and other members of the Diet and Health Research Industry Club. At least one of the companies “sees potential for future commercial application," says a researcher.
