Beverage Thickness Increases Expectations Of Satiety – Study

October 31, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers in the U.K. who tested the effect of different beverage combinations on expectations of satiety found that people assumed thicker drinks would make them feel fuller longer. Expectations of satiety – the thin, thick, creamy and high- and low-calorie drinks were rated against hypothetical pasta and sauce dishes of different sizes – were boosted by thick drinks even when other drink combinations had the same number of calories. Creamy flavors and higher calorie content did not increase the expected impact on hunger. The researchers said figuring out how to make drinks feel more filling without increasing their caloric content could help mitigate the impact on weight.
