Olestra is a fat substitute that is used in certain foods to reduce the amount of fat and calories. Olestra is not absorbed by the body and can pass through the digestive system relatively unchanged. While olestra may be effective for reducing the amount of fat and calories in certain foods, it may also be associated with potential side effects like abdominal cramping and diarrhea. It's important to work closely with a qualified healthcare professional to determine whether foods containing olestra are appropriate and effective for individual needs.
