Protein World’s Carb Blocker versus USN Carb Block

Posted 22 March 2018

Protein World’s Carb Blocker contains White kidney bean extract, Garcinia cambogia and Chromium picolinate.

USN’s Carb Block contained White kidney bean extract. 

USN/Albe Geldenhuys are suing Dr Harris Steinman for R2 million alleging defamation, precipitated by Steinman stating that USN/Geldenhuys was scamming consumers by making false claims for USN Carb Blocker. Following the ASA ruling against the claims as well as the product name, USN simply changed the name of the product to USN Carb Binder and continued making essentially the same claims. USN no longer sells this product – but is still suing Steinman.

Protein World’s Carb Blocker made essentially the same claims as USN did. Now the UK ASA has ruled against these claims as well as the name of the product.
