Slimful bars, 90 cals
Bought some Slimful bars (Cocoa Brownie) which are 90 cals and the package says ""with 8 oz of water, satisfies your stomach for hours". Although the first three ingredients are sweetners, it contains konjac flour, aka glucomannan, which is probably the reason it "satisfies your stomach for hours"!

Anybody have an idea how to reproduce these at home?

I've never heard of those. I had tried the full bars for a little while back in February last year. If I recall they were a bit high in carbs and I was watching carbs back then so gave up on them. I'll link a thread in a bit that may help.

try this link and see what you can find.

No idea how to replicate them, but I'm always looking for low calorie bars. Where did you find them?

What are all the ingredients?

Never heard of them, but I would love more info! Hoping they are GF!

Found this info:

Limit yourself to three (3) Slimful™ chews per day at least four (4) hours apart.

Does Slimful™ contain any common allergens?

Slimful™ is gluten free.
Orange Tangerine, Very Berry and Honey Almond Slimful™ flavors are dairy free. Cocoa Brownie Slimful™ is not dairy free.
Slimful™ contains soy. It is manufactured on equipment that also manufactures products containing traces of peanuts, tree nuts and/or soy protein.

Corn syrup, sugar and maltodextrin are the first 3 ingredients...

Only 90 cals, but...
Yep, the first 3 ingredients are sweetners. I got starry-eyed when I saw the "90 calories, several hour" hype.. Didn't even look at the carbs! 18 Net carbs per bar :down:

That is why I was wondering if any of our mad-scientest JUDDDS BUDS had/could come up with a friendlier version!

Ate the first bar today - I got better results just from three capsules of straight glucomannan.
