Shreddies are a line of underwear for men and women designed to filter out the smell caused from flatulence. Using Zorflex, the activated carbon also used in chemical warfare suits, these undies are meant to help “sufferers of digestive disorders such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohn’s disease, Colitis and food intolerances” by filtering out their body’s noxious odors. We have previously written about flatulence deodorizer pads that stick to your underwear.
Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.
