Branched Alpha-glucans For Weight Management
Highly branched α-glucan having an average molar weight of at least 105 Da can be used for inducing or enhancing satiety and/or satiation in humans or animals by incorporation of the α-glucan into a liquid nutritional or pharmaceutical composition, preferably together with a food protein. The α-glucan induces a viscosity
