Scientists have tested the effectiveness of a fibre-based dietary ingredient that makes people feel less hungry and consume less food.


According the study by researchers from the University of Liverpool, when 90 normal to overweight participants were given a fruit-based smoothie for breakfast containing a dose of either 20g or 30g of Weightain satiety ingredient or a non-active control, their subsequent intake of food at both lunch and dinner on that day was measured and their levels of hunger examined.

The study also found that food intake at both lunch and dinner times was lower when the satiety ingredient was given at breakfast, compared to the control and overall, after the 20g dose, 4 percent fewer calories were eaten and after the 30g dose 5 percent less food was eaten at both lunch and dinner combined.

While, at lunchtime, 5 percent less food was consumed after the 20g dose than after the control and at dinner time participants ate 7 percent fewer calories after the 30g dose compared to when they had the smoothie made without the Weightain satiety ingredient and lower hunger levels after breakfast were recorded for both doses and the 30g dose produced lower hunger levels after lunch.
