  Lipozene....A product made from from Amorphophallis
From: abri1973 at wp.pl (Marek Argent) on 2007.10.05 at 16:45:13(16405)
Hello Windy et al.,

I think that Lipozene is a commercial name for glucomannan, the substance that is within the tubers of Amorphophallus konjac.
In my Araceum (www.araceum.prv.pl) I have a dictionary of terms concerning to aroids,
but now it is only in Polish language, because I find it too hard to translate this vocabulary into English.
However if you'd like to see - here it is: http://www.wschowa.com/abrimaal/araceum/slownik/slownik.htm
And here is an info about medicals produced from Am. konjac (sadly in Polish, too): http://www.wschowa.com/abrimaal/araceum/slownik/aplefit.htm
