Low-Fat Yogurt Fortified With Protein And Fiber Reduces Appetite

October 17, 2009: 06:53 AM EST
A low-fat dairy product enriched with protein and fiber can significantly reduce short-term appetite, new French and British research has found. In controlled laboratory studies, healthy women were fed a mid-morning snack of either the control (regular yogurt) or a low-fat yogurt enriched with eight grams of protein and 2.9 grams of fiber. The scientists recorded subjective factors like hunger, fullness, desire to eat and prospective consumption throughout the morning. Two hours later, the researchers measured food intake at lunch. “The test product reduced subjective appetite compared to the control,” the scientists concluded. And the women ate less.
