FDA Approves Claims for Supplement Ingredient

he Food and Drug Administration approved certain claims for Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer, an ingredient found in many over-the-counter supplements, according to WPIX-CW11 in New York. Phase 2 was developed to help people lose or maintain their weight. Phase 2 is made from an extract from the raw white kidney bean that blocks amylase, an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates so they may be absorbed in the system. One of the claims the FDA allowed was that Phase 2 may assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.
