Aromatic Compounds In Olive Oil Contribute To Sensation Of Fullness

March 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A German study involving 500 participants found that natural oils and fats do a good job of regulating how full a person feels after eating. Olive oil in particular contributes to the sensation of fullness, primarily because of  aroma compounds. In one part of the study a group was given yogurt with olive oil aroma extracts, while a control group was given plain yogurt. The olive oil group’s calorie intake remained the same, but the control group had been consuming an extra 176 kilocalories per day. The control group had less of the satiety hormone serotonin in their blood, researchers said. Aroma compounds could pave the way for the development of more effective reduced-fat – and satiating – food products.
