The overwhelming feedback from her patients over the years is that they reduce hunger, and are a great replacement for other sweet treats to satisfy sugar cravings (but with little impact on blood sugars in her patients with diabetes). In fact, many of her patients on weight loss programs have lost weight whilst eating up to 4 Skinnybik biscuits a day!
The first version was released in 2010 (4.5 health star rating) and the even healthier reformulation (5 health star rating) was released in August 2020. The new versions CONTAIN GLUTEN because Dr Kouris was keen to use wholegrains (mainly oat bran and a small amount of wholemeal flour) to further improve their nutritional profile and health properties (gluten free flour is highly processed, starchy and nutrient poor). Furthermore, unlike other reduced carb products, Skinnybik do not have laxative sweeteners (like mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol) and therefore do not cause bloating and diarrhoea.
