What Is Sensa

Although also referred to as the ‘Sprinkle Diet’, Sensa is actually not categorically a diet program since it does not encourage certain foods you should or should not eat. Sensa is a 6-month weight-loss system that uses your sense of smell to send message to your brain that you are already full.

The product comes in the form of food flakes that you sprinkle on your food. The flakes are made from tricalcium phosphate, maltodextrin, silica, and flavors – all of which are calorie-free, sodium-free, and sugar-free. These sprinkles apparently enhance your scent and also add a mild savory or sweet taste depending on the flavor you choose. Flavors include cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, onion, taco, horseradish, ranch dressing, cocoa, spearmint, raspberry, banana strawberry, and malt.

Science Behind Sensa

Sensa is a product created by Dr. Alan Hirsch – an award-winning board-certified neurologist and psychologist who has had 25 years of research to the science of smell and taste and has published over 200 research studies delving into the smell and taste’s effects on human behaviors.

According to its website, Dr Hirsch observed that many patients who had lost their sense of smell due to head trauma gained about 20 to 30 pounds. This led him to hypothesize that enhancing one’s sense of smell could lead to the contrary. His studies led into the development of the patented technology behind Sensa weight loss system. He created a blend of edible ‘Tastants’ intended to enhance both smell and taste of food which he believed would direct to weight loss.

After conducting one of the largest research studies on weight-loss product which proved that Dr. Hirsch’s ‘Tastants’ have made participants lose an average of 30.5 pounds, the Tastants are now called Sensa.

How Does it Work?

When you eat food sprinkled with Sensa, you are supposed to experience what Dr. Hirsch describes as a ‘sensory-specific-satiety’. Your smell receptors simply fool your brain and stomach into thinking that you are already full. It seemingly changes your eating habits and behavior.

There is no diet to follow and no need to starve yourself. It does not discourage you from eating your favorite food or what everybody in your family is eating. You can bring Sensa with you even to the restaurant and use it to enjoy meals that you fancy and Sensa will apparently help you eat less.

How To Use It?

As you would use salt and pepper on your food, simply sprinkle Sensa evenly on the entire surface of your meal before you eat. It is not to be mixed before or after cooking. The amount of flakes you sprinkle depends on the amount of your meal.


  • No changes in your diet. There is no need to adapt to a new diet since you can continue to eat what you want as long as you use the sprinkles.
  • No intense workouts. There is no need to change your exercise routine.
  • Clinically proven. It is a product of painstaking research by the nation’s leading authority on the science of smell and taste. You may refer to the official website or the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation for details on the clinical studies proving the product’s efficiency.
