Unilever touts efficacy of new appetite-suppressing milkshake

GENEVA Unilever has developed a new appetite suppressant that traps the gas from food to create the feeling of satiety, the company announced Wednesday.

Research showed the suppressant, which comes in the form of a milkshake-like drink, is more effective than Unilever’s Slim-Fast drinks.

Researchers tested the drink on 24 subjects at breakfast, giving one group the new drink and the other group the regular Slim-Fast drink. Subjects given the new drink responded that they felt fuller at different intervals over the four-hour test.
