In recent years, Raspberry Ketone’s apparent qualities in aiding weight loss have been popular.

It’s a chemical compound found in raspberries, blackberries and cranberries, which is not only found in weight loss products, but also in foods as a flavouring and fragrance agent.

Results from clinical animal studies have revealed Raspberry Ketone can help enhance the fat burning process and reduce fatty tissue in the body.

But while hundreds of versions of the product have hit shelves all over the world it was band in the UK in 2003 by the Food Standards Agency.

The reason for its ban came after concerns emerged over its safety and there being no conclusive studies conducted on humans supporting its use as a weight loss supplement.

The Food Standards Agency classified Raspberry Ketone as a ‘novel food’  – a type of food that does not have a significant history of consumption or one that is produced in a way that has not previously been used for food.
