Since the new "functional labeling food system" was added by the Japanese government in 2015, more than 4000 new products have been successfully declared, of which about one third are products with the main purpose of reducing weight. There are also a wide range of raw materials related to weight loss, not only for different parts (leg, abdomen, visceral fat), but also for different mechanisms (inhibiting the absorption of sugar and fat), Enhance fat metabolism).
In this article, we list some of the most commonly used functional foods in Japan in 2020, as well as new weight loss materials.
Among the weight loss related raw materials, the top 10 were resistant dextrin, black ginger polymethoxyflavone, isomaltodextrin, ellagic acid, inulin, epigallocatechin gallate, tilioside from rose fruit, Pueraria isoflavone, pyrrole and chlorogenic acid, 3 of which were dietary fiber and seven were plant extracts.
In the specific products, the number of resistant dextrin as the main component is more than 60, which is far higher than other raw materials.
In short, resistant dextrin tops in the most used weight control related ingredients. The total number of declared product items are 68. The main declared function the inhibition of the absorption of fat and sugar.
Resistant dextrin is a kind of water-soluble dietary fiber. It is a kind of low calorie dextran extracted and refined by industrial technology. It contains more than 85% of high dietary fiber. It has the characteristics of natural, high water solubility, heat and acid resistance, no peculiar smell, not easily affected by moisture and caking, and easy processing. It can promote intestinal digestion and inhibit the rise of blood sugar. At present, it has been widely used in all kinds of beverages, dairy products, convenience foods and candy snacks.
The picture above shows Asahi style balance series carbonated drinks with 5g resistant dextrin added, claiming to "inhibit the absorption of fat and sugar after meals".
The picture above shows Wudong noodles with resistant dextrin.
The top 10 weight loss materials are listed below.
1. Resistant dextrin (inhibit the absorption of fat and sugar)
2. Polymethoxy flavones from black ginger (reduce body fat)
3. Isomaltodextrin (inhibit the rise of postprandial blood glucose)
4. Ellagic acid (reduce body fat, neutral fat)
5. Inulin (inhibit postprandial blood glucose rise)
6. Epigallocatechin gallate (reduce body fat)
7. Tilioside from Rosa rugosa (reduce visceral fat)
8. Isoflavones from Pueraria lobata (reduce abdominal fat)
9. Piril (inhibit the absorption of sugar)
10. Chlorogenic acid (inhibit postprandial blood glucose level)
In a word, with the improvement of consumers' health awareness, scientific and healthy way of weight loss has been respected. Weight loss products with natural ingredients such as plant extracts, dietary fiber, probiotics and so on are replacing traditional synthetic weight loss drugs with obvious side effects, which are sought after by consumers.
JIANLONG BIOTECHNOLOGY CO., LTD is one of the 2 main factories in China producing resistant dextrin. We are the ONLY one in local producers to obtain by the enzymatic hydrolysis (wet processing) of corn starch, and no hydrochloric acid is added in the production. Our production line is designed by highly European trained technical teams according to European international standards with advanced equipment.
