- Scientific TitleTexture and energy density in learned satiation.
- hypothesisAd libitum intake of meal items will be lower in the semi-solid food conditions compared to the liquid food conditions. In addition, there will be no effect on intake of energy density in the liquid group, whereas there is a energy density effect in the semi-solid test conditions.

- Target number of participants40
- InterventionsIn a randomized cross-over design participants consume fixed amounts of:
1. A liquid food with a low energy density;
2. A liquid food with a high energy density;
3. A semi-solid food with a low energy density;
4. A semi-solid food with a high energy density.

The test foods will be a fixed part of breakfast, lunch and dinner on day 1, 2 and 3, and total intake will be measured during consecutive meals.

On day 4, ad libitum intake of the test food will be measured at breakfast.
- Primary outcomeAd libitum intake in kcal/day of meal items that are provided in addition to the test foods.
- Secondary outcome1. Change in Expected satiation;
2. Pleasantness;
3. Ad libitum intake.
- Timepoints1. All meal occasions on day 1 to 4 (Mo-Th);
2. 4 conditions (4* Mo-Th) in total.

- Brief summaryObjective:
The primary objective of this study is to determine the effect of texture and energy density on learned satiation. Energy adjustment is assessed by measuring ad libitum intake (kcal/day) of meal items provided in addition to the test foods which are offered in a fixed amount.

Study population:
The study population will consist of 40 apparently healthy, unrestrained volunteers, aged between 18 and 35 y, with a normal weight.

Study design:
In a randomized cross-over design, participants will consume either:
1. A low-energy-dense liquid test food;
2. A high-energy-dense liquid test food;
3. A low-energy-dense semi-solid test food;
4. A high-energy-dense semi-solid test food.
In each test condition, total intake during breakfast, lunch, dinner will be measured on consecutive days (day 1 to 3), with the test food as obligatory part of all meals. On day 4, the test food will be offered ad libitum for breakfast and intake will be measured.

Study outcomes:
Ad libitum intake (kcal/day) of meal items provided in addition to the test foods. As secondary outcomes, expected satiation and pleasantness of the test foods will be assessed before and after repeated consumption. In addition, the test food will be offered ad libitum for breakfast and intake will be measured.

Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, benefit and group relatedness:
The study is non-therapeutic to the participant and no invasive measurements are present. The risk associated with participation is negligible. Compared to other studies the burden can be considered as low. Participants will be offered financial compensation after completion of the study.
