Adherence to diet can be measured from blood
New results from the Nordic SYSDIET study show that it's possible to assess dietary compliance from a blood sample.

Fiber-based satiety ingredient shown to make you eat less
Scientists from the University of Liverpool have demonstrated the effectiveness of a fiber-based dietary ingredient that makes people feel less hungry and consume less food.
