How does Slim-Be work?

Our Slim-Be shots and cereal bars contain konjac, which is a root vegetable grown in the Far East. It’s been a popular food in South East Asia for years, where it’s believed to have all kinds of health benefits. We can’t tell you whether there is truth in most of those claims, but konjac has been proven as an aid for weight loss (advice checked by EFSA) and we can be completely confident about how it helps here.

Konjac contains a soft, soluble fibre called glucomannan which has very few calories, but expands to fill the stomach if you drink plenty of water.

Eat Less

If you take a gram of konjac with around two glasses of water before each meal, you’ll find you won’t need to eat much.

All Slim-Be shots and bars contain the right amount of konjac. So you simply need to have one before each meal and drink plenty of fluid. Our chef spent years perfecting our own secret konjac recipe which works brilliantly in Slim-Be bars and shots (and in our porridge and noodles too, which will be in shops soon).

It’s as natural as we can make it and you’ll still enjoy your food – we love eating well and wouldn’t be happy otherwise - but you’ll feel full after just a small portion. And if you eat less, you naturally lose weight. By the way, there’s no need to worry if you have more than one shot or bar, though one is all it takes for Slim-Be to work. Extra konjac won’t do you any harm.


The European Food standards Agency (EFSA) have authorised the claim that glucomannan (found in Konjac) contributes to weight loss when used with an energy restricted diet.
