    By the way, when we asked why the brand was called AL Chipino, we were told that it was a riff on Al Pacino. We’re not sure of the relation between Pacino and tortilla chips; but when we asked why AL is spelled in all caps: It’s “something different.”
     
     
    2. LEANER CREAMER: LACTOSE FREE

    Leaner Creamer says it’s the world’s first natural powdered creamer. But that’s not why it’s different.

    The company claims weight-loss benefits (see *below). We’re not qualified to judge those claims, but we are qualified to say that these are lactose-free powdered creamers worth looking at.

    Further, it increases the body’s metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreas, thereby burning more energy and helping weight loss goals.

    *WHAT’S UP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?

    According to the company, the product is made from ingredients that are said to help in weight loss. THE NIBBLE makes no claims to understanding these ingredients, and suggests that you do your own research.

    The principle ingredient is coconut oil, which contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight. It is also easy to digest and it helps in the healthy functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system.

    Citrus aurantium extract is extensively used in weight management products and as thermogenic agents. It is also used in sports performance products to enhance stamina and an increase in basal metabolic rate and lipolysis as well as mild appetite suppression.

    Hoodia is a succulent, fleshy cactus-like plant of the Asclepiad family. Among its many varieties, Hoodia gordonii is the most popular because its extracts suppress hunger and effectively helps reduce weight and fat percentage.

    Green tea extract is a product made from the Camellia sinensis plant. It is used for weight loss and to treat stomach disorders.
