Truweight is an app that provides weight loss solutions using their ‘Super Foods’ concept – a customised nutrition plan for users. These ‘ Super Foods’ are a combination of drinks, soups, snacks etc that are rich in fibre , protein and low in sugar and fat and aid in weight loss. They provide healthy doses of nutrients like spirulina, oats, barley grass, alfaalfa grass, acacia gum, herbs, foxtail millets etc

“Truweight has a genuinely fresh approach to weight loss in a market cluttered with short cut offerings like pills, potions and exercise machines. They believe that each individual deserves customized mentoring according to their body type, lifestyle and tendency to put on weight. At Kalaari Capital, we appreciate the vision of the co-founders and believe their technology driven, customer centric and truthful approach to a pervasive problem will bring them tangible success in the burgeoning health and wellness market in India,” said Rajesh Raju, Managing Director, Kalaari Capital.
