Chocolates That Supresses Absorption of Fat and Sugar
LIBERA are small squared chocolates made by a major confectionary maker, Glico. LIBERA is made of cacao from Ghana and contains indigestible dextrin that limits the absorption of fat and sugar. Indigestible dextrin is a water soluble dietary fiber made from corn starch. Fat and sugar contained by chocolates are absorbed in the intestines. Indigestible dextrin prevents the absorption of fat. Since dextrin is tasteless, you don’t feel it when you are eating the chocolates. One bag is 50g and 262 kcal. There are two kinds of favors, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Most drug stores carry them. The cost for one bag is 162 yen.
