Unless if you have an allergy to at, the answer is yes, anyone can eat our Slim products, but they are not like your average food. The Eat Water range is suitable for diabetics since it contains as little as 0g of carbohydrates and sugar (per 100g serving). It is also suitable for Coeliacs, as it is free of gluten, and is listed on the Coeliac UK databases of foods suitable for Coeliacs.
Does the Slim Lunchbox range contain harmful preservatives in order to give them long life like most ready meals?
Our ready meals are made by with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The sauce and konjac are sealed in individual pouches and sealed before gently heating them using high pressure and steam, until they are nicely cooked. This keeps all of the flavours, aromas and goodness inside without the need of harmful preservatives.
Yes! Konjac has been consumed in Japan for thousands of years, far before the advent of fad diets and ‘miracle’ weight loss products. This makes Slim products not just satisfying for your stomach, but foods that can actually help you lose weight! Their fibre content aids in digestion, and they’re even safe for most special-needs diets such as those for diabetics and Coeliacs. Konjac contains glucomannan. Glucomannan, as part of a calorie-controlled diet, contributes to weight loss. The way to this weight loss is a daily intake of 3g glucomannan, spread through three doses of 1g each (which is why 33g Slim Pasta® provides 1g glucomannan). 1-2 glasses of water MUST be taken with glucomannan, before calorie-controlled meals. Always accompany it with plenty of water, as there is a risk of choking for people with swallowing difficulties or those who consume it with inadequate fluid.
We don’t recommend freezing food made with konjac products as it may lose its texture and shape and we can’t vouch for the results! Slim Cooking range can be refrigerated for up to two days after opening, however. We recommend consuming them immediately, because they’re delicious and satisfying!
