Slendesta® - A Hunger Control Supplement Ingredient

Sticking to a healthy diet and managing weight isn't easy for today's consumers. Slendesta is a dietary ingredient for satiety that offers the support dieters need to control hunger and feel full between meals.

When formulated into a supplement or food product, Slendesta helps:

  • Boost satiety to promote feelings of fullness.1
  • Suppress appetite and control hunger to help manage weight.1
  • Promote weight loss and reduce waist and hip measurements when used with a sensible diet and exercise routine.2,3

How Slendesta Works:


A safe and effective satiety solution

Slendesta is a safe, natural potato protein-based dietary supplement ingredient that boosts satiety to promote feelings of fullness without any unpleasant side effects.4 The satiety ingredient has been clinically shown to help individuals eat less and feel satisfied sooner and longer.1  The ingredient’s satiety benefits make it easier to control portion size and snacking, and in turn, achieve weight management goals.

Clinically-studied satiety and weight management benefits

The satiety and weight management benefits of Slendesta and PI2 have been clinically studied in 12 human clinical trials with more than 500 collective participants. Participants were told the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise, but were not prescribed a specific regimen. No adverse side effects were reported in any Slendesta clinical trial. Participants experienced:

  • Increased feelings of fullness
  • Demonstrated weight loss including significant reductions in waist and hip measurements
  • Decreased post-meal blood sugar

Natural hunger control developed with advanced plant science

The active molecule in Slendesta is a well-studied protein called Proteinase Inhibitor II (PI2). PI2 works by promoting and extending the body’s natural release of cholecystokinin (CCK), a powerful peptide that signals key organs, including the stomach and brain, to induce feelings of fullness. To leverage the powerful satiety benefits of PI2, our plant scientists began searching for a natural source of this molecule.

We discovered russet potatoes have naturally occurring higher levels of PI2 and can serve as a botanical factory for our satiety ingredient.5 Kemin’s Specialty Crop Improvement (SCI) team used traditional plant breeding methods to further develop these potatoes.

Carefully grown and manufactured for weight management

Kemin’s potato supply chain is nearly 100% vertically integrated, allowing us to provide a safe and traceable satiety ingredient. We partner with farmers in the USA to grow and harvest our potatoes. From the fields, the potatoes are transported to Kemin’s state-of-the-art extraction facility in Des Moines, Iowa for storage and processing.

We use a patented water-based extraction process without harsh chemical solvents. The specialized extraction and ultra-filtration techniques do not alter PI2 functionality and allow us to standardize Slendesta to guaranteed levels of PI2. After the manufacturing process is complete, Slendesta is packaged at Kemin and prepared for shipment to customers worldwide.

Slendesta is manufactured in accordance with GMPs for food, 21 C.F.R. 110 and 117 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Kemin Foods, L.C. facilities also conform to the NSF® International Dietary Supplement & Functional Foods Program-NSF/ANSI 173 Section 8 standard, which is based on 21 C.F.R. 111 Dietary Supplement GMPs.
