Since Almased launched in the 1980s, our company remains a family-run business. Every employee and every customer is part of the Almased family to us. With this understanding comes responsibility, and we take this very seriously. You can therefore have confidence that we ensure that when you buy Almased, you are getting a product which keeps its promises, thanks to our strict quality assurance and continual scientific research.
Our story began over 30 years ago in Bienenbüttel, Germany. Hubertus Trouillé, a medical scientist sought to develop a nourishing food product that was natural, healthy and with the aim of improving his patients slow metabolic function and low energy levels. Together with his son André, at his own kitchen table, he tested out a blend of soya, yogurt and honey until he had perfected this unique recipe. To this day, the recipe remains the same and is the reason behind the unrivalled success of Almased.
Mr Trouillé used the powder himself before giving it to his patients. However, it wasn’t long for his patients to notice improvements in both their energy levels and weight. Mr Trouillé realised that not only had he developed a formula to support metabolic function, but he had also created a truly multi-faceted product. He quickly started receiving inquiries from alternative practitioners, doctors and pharmacists and soon established Almased as a market leader in Germany.
The Almased success story doesn’t end in Germany. Almased has now become internationally established in the US, Canada, UK, Switzerland and Austria. Despite global expansion and international success, we nonetheless remain true to our traditions. The global headquarters of the company remains in Bienenbüttel where it all began. We continue to flourish as a family business, now led by André Trouillé. Almased continues to live by Hubertus Trouillé’s original values and aspirations. We remain passionate and responsible for creating natural products which you can rely on throughout your life.
Carefully selected natural ingredients and the unique benefits of Almased are not only our focus. To us, science is something close to our hearts, which is why we have been committed to clinical research for many years. Almased’s effectiveness has been continuously and intensively researched at globally renowned institutes for more than 30 years. Our participation at international conferences and scientific exhibitions ensure we are able to impart our valuable knowledge to the scientific community and beyond. Such continuing research enables us to provide you with the most current and accurate information whatever your weight loss goal.
Almased is an evidence-based meal replacement made from natural, nourishing ingredients; it contains the highest amount of protein compared to any other meal replacement in the UK market. Today, almost 40 clinical studies conducted by medical scientists across the world has shown the effectiveness of Almased in achieving and maintaining weight loss, an essential contributory factor to optimum health and well-being.
Clincial testing has taken place at internationally renowned universities, namely the University of Freiburg, West German Diabetes and Health Centre, London Metropolitan University and Wake Forest USA. Our results have been published in leading scientific journals such as:
International Journal of Obesity
The Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics
Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism
BMC Women's Health Journal
Past and ongoing research has explored the effect Almased has on body weight, satiety and the retention of muscle mass. These factors, particularly the retention of muscle, all influence metabolic activity and can play an important role in healthy, effective weight loss and weight maintenance. Further research has also highlighted superior weight loss results in participants using Almased when compared to those engaged in a fat-restricted low calorie diet.
In addition, Almased's low glycaemic index (27) and exceptionally low glycaemic load (4) has resulted in the product being highly beneficial for those with Type 2 diabetes. A multitude of clinical studies has confirmed this, with results showing Almased supporting healthy weight loss, long-term improvements in HbA1c and most importantly the reduction in insulin and anti-diabetic medication.
