What is Phase 2 Carb Controller®?

Phase 2® created the category of natural carb control worldwide. Phase 2® is a proprietary all-natural ingredient, a non-stimulant extract of the white kidney bean, and has been clinically shown to reduce the digestion and absorption of dietary starches by up to 66%.

It is the first carbohydrate ‘blocker’ that is clinically proven in over a dozen completed and published clinical trials to delay the digestion and absorption of dietary starches. This in turn, reduces the caloric impact of starchy foods, and also lowers the glucose response and glycemic index.

When used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise, Phase 2® may assist in weight control. While there is no such thing as a ‘magic-bullet’ for weight control, Phase 2® may enable people concerned with weight control and/or blood glucose levels to enjoy carb-rich foods again in moderation. Phase 2® is called StarchLite® in Europe.

Phase 2® has been the subject of over a dozen clinical studies since 2001, which have proven its safety and effectiveness. In 2006, the US Food & Drug Administration conducted an extensive review of clinical data and information on Phase 2®, and announced that it does not object to weight control and starch reduction claims for Phase 2®, and supplements containing it. With this announcement, Phase 2® became the first nutritional diet ingredient with two permitted structure/function claims:

“May assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program,” and

“May reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches.”
