The food giant Nestle is working with a team of scientists to create a new product that can very likely be capable of assisting people all around the world. Nestle intends to make the very first “exercise in a bottle.”
Nestle is the biggest food company on the planet and they are known for KitKat and other products.
The new product is not ready for the market yet, said the company. Nevertheless, at the Nestle Institute of Health Sciences in Switzerland eight researchers have come together to figure out a method to bottle the results of physical exercise.
Nestle researchers believe they have found a chemical that controls the metabolic activity of the human body. They think this may be a starting point in finding a way to mimic the effect of burning fat which is the result of physical exercise. At this point, the team of scientists is searching for methods to naturally reproduce those effects.
By creating the new product, the company wants to target the customers’ disillusion towards food that is packed. Nestle wishes to come up with products that are able to do a lot more than just feed people.
Jean-Philippe Bertschy, an analyst said:
“The border between food and pharma will narrow in the coming years. Companies with a diversified, healthy food portfolio will emerge as the winners.”
Figures point in that direction already. Many buyers want their food to also have health benefits along being a meal. Organic and gluten-free products are expected to grow in sales.
The company wishes for its new product to help people who have limited mobility because of age, obesity or diabetes.
The scientist overseeing diabetes research, Kei Sakamoto said:
“In some conditions, such as diabetes, the body doesn’t respond properly to insulin, and muscle cells reject the message about their need to take up glucose,”
Various other companies attempted to come up with products that burn fat like the one currently being developed by Nestle, but none of them succeeded. If the new product from Nestle will be successful in being the first “exercise in a bottle” the company will make history.
