Last updated:8th May 2013
A diet high in easily obtained energy-dense foods leads to the problems of overweight and obesity common in the developed world. Foods enriched with fiber or bitter compounds may increase satiety and decrease energy intake. This intervention will measure the effectiveness of coffee melanoidins, bread melanoidins, beta-glucans, and a Gentiana lutea L. extract in both a free or encapsulated form to decrease energy intake and modify the physiological markers of satiety in the short term. In particular bread (fiber) and a pudding (Gentiana lutea L. extract) will be used as tasty food matrices in the study.
