In 2017, China’s meal replacement market reached 57.11 billion yuan, and it is expected that China’s meal replacement market will reach 120 billion yuan in 2020.
  Although the regulations of the meal replacement market are not perfect, the products of meal replacement are also mixed. Whether it is solid beverages, energy bars, or meal replacement biscuits, as a manufacturer, we need to increase our sense of responsibility and food safety awareness to ensure product quality. As consumers, we need to use scientific knowledge and calm brains to choose qualified meal replacement foods.

  Partial meal replacement food:In order to meet the partial nutritional needs of one or two meals during the weight control period of adults, instead of part of one meal or two meals, it is a specially processed and formulated energy-control food.

Introduction to some raw materials of    meal replacement food
  01

   raw material for satiety:(dietary fiber)
   Psyllium husk powder:
  Psyllium sylvestris shell is rich in gum (Mucilage, psyllium hydrophile), composed of aldose, xylose, galacturonic acid, semi-dry fatty oil and a small amount of Aucubin (Aucubine) .
  Psyllium husk is rich in dietary fiber, up to 80%, and the ratio of soluble dietary fiber to insoluble dietary fiber is as high as 7:3.
  Other nutrients mainly include glucoside, protein, polysaccharide, vitamin B1 and choline.
   Psyllium husk powder has high water holding capacity and swelling properties, which has a volume effect on the gastrointestinal tract, which is easy to produce satiety and reduce food intake. At the same time, it can inhibit the activity of carbohydrates and lipids and affect the absorption in the small intestine.

Other situations that need to be explained
1. The scope of use does not include baby food.
2. The health and safety indicators should meet the relevant standards of our country.
  Oat β-glucan:
   β-(1→3, 1→4) glucan in oats is abbreviated as oat β-glucan, which is a non-starch polysaccharide that exists in the cell walls of oat endosperm and aleurone. It is a high molecular polymer formed by the monomer β-D-glucopyranose, which is connected by β-(1→3) and β-(1→4) glycosidic bonds.
  β-glucan can reduce the absorption rate of fat and cholesterol in the small intestine, thereby reducing serum cholesterol; in addition, β-glucan can also reduce the absorption of carbohydrates in the small intestine, thereby reducing plasma insulin concentration and reducing cholesterol And the stimulation of lipoprotein synthesis.

   Meal Replacement Product Selection Points
  01

   see protein content
   In the nutrition ingredient list, there is a protein content mark, but you must pay attention to the unit when selecting. Some are 100g protein content, and some are protein content of one serving. There is a big gap between the two.
  02

   see the main ingredients of satiety
   Dietary fibers such as psyllium husk powder, β-glucan, etc. are healthy and satiety raw materials.
  03

   see if it contains vitamins and minerals
  Although the content of the essential ingredients of    meal replacement is small, the lack of it also affects your health. So if you want to lose weight healthy, these nutrients are indispensable.
   Finally, I remind everyone that we must scientifically replace meals and refuse blind dieting. After all, it is not easy to live. Don’t waste great food for the sake of vain body. As long as it does not harm your health, you can eat whatever you want.
