About potato protein isolates
Potato protein isolates have been on the European food ingredient market since 2008, and have been introduced to the U.S. market since 2009. With potato protein isolate’s introduction as a generally-recognized as safe food ingredient by Dutch company Solanic in March of this year for gluten-free ingredient for baked goods, and an alternative to animal proteins in both finished foods and beverages, many food manufacturers have jumped on this natural ingredient’s bandwagon. Extracted by a specialized technology, the protein composition of the isolate is said to contain anywhere between 90-95% amino acid concentrations, along with high solubility, and bioavailability. This amino acid content exceeds the protein content of soybean protein isolates and the overall recommended daily nutrition allowances, which have successful applications for sports nutrition.
Since the introduction of the protein isolate trend, some companies have created branded version of the protein that contains the active ingredient, protease inhibitor PI-2, which is a protein naturally derived from potatoes. Such branded ingredients include: Slendesta® (Kemin Health) and Solathin® (Cyvex Nutrition) introduced in the weight loss market in [years]
Protease inhibitor PI-2 enables the release of PI-2 enables the release of cholecystokinin (CKK), a digestive hormone released as food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. It has been clinically shown to promote feelings of gastric fullness and satiety.
Numerous research studies on CKK show that it is successful at promoting feelings of fullness and decreasing food intake in humans, ultimately leading to weight loss (1,2). Human randomized, controlled clinical studies performed on Slendesta® taken twice daily 30-60 at 15 and 30mg before meals supports its efficacy on satiety and significant weight loss compared to placebo (3, 4, 5).
EverydayVitamin.com carries a weight loss drink mix that contains Solathin® by Nature’s Way. As a powder, Aqua Slender™ is added to four ounces of water and is taken 30-60 minutes before eating the two largest meals of the day. It contains 38mg of Solathin®, which provides 15mg of protease inhibitor PI-2.
Consumers looking for a natural way to suppress appetite without having to take pills, can find convenience with this product to take on the go and enjoy as a supplemental weight loss drink.
