OptiBiotix Health, a leading developer of compounds to tackle obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, has announced the launch of a new porridge weight and cholesterol management solution featuring its award-winning SlimBiome technology
The newly launched product is now available to purchase in the OptiBiotix Online store as part of the company’s GoFigure range for consumers.
Containing British oats rich in beta-glucans to promote healthy cholesterol levels, the porridge provides 8.3 g of fibre per serving – 25% of an adult’s daily recommended intake.
Steven Riley, Director of Marketing and Consumer Sales at OptiBiotix, said: “The launch of our new porridge is another exciting step for our GoFigure range into functional foods, which has seen continued success with consumers across Europe."
“Featuring a blend of non-digestible prebiotics, dietary fibres such as konjac fibre (glucomannan) and a trace mineral, consumers can start their day feeling fuller for longer with a delicious bowl of GoFigure porridge, thanks to our science backed SlimBiome technology."
"It’s packed with fibre to help improve gut health, while the oats are rich in beta-glucans to help manage cholesterol health by reducing the intestinal uptake of dietary cholesterol.”
As a new addition to the GoFigure range, the porridge, attractively delivered in a pouch pack, complements breakfast muesli pots, flapjacks and meal replacement shakes, delivering greater variety for consumers who are looking to manage their weight day to day.
Eaten hot or cold as part of a healthy breakfast or lunch, consumers simply add milk, water or fruit juice to a 60 g serving to help curb unhealthy snacking throughout the day. The porridge is also suitable for vegans.
Dr Frederic Narbel, Managing Director of the Prebiotics division at OptiBiotix, said: “We’re excited to unveil our new porridge for our GoFigure range, which will help to diversify the opportunities available to our global partners. Low in saturated fat, salt and a good source of protein, the porridge can be easily topped with fruits and nuts to add more flavour and nutritional value to support a healthy, balanced diet.”
Alongside fruits and nuts, flavour boosters can also be purchased from the OptiBiotix online store to enhance the porridge’s natural taste. Available in a selection of flavours, including mango, mint, orange and strawberry, they contain zero calories and are fat and sugar-free.
