Oro-sensory exposure, eating rate and satiation

- Public TitleOro-sensory exposure, eating rate and satiation
- Scientific TitleOro-sensory exposure, eating rate and satiation
- ACRONYMFudge study
- hypothesisWe expect that increased oro-sensory exposure and decreased ingestion rate equally and additively increase satiation (lowering intake). In addition, we expect that increased oro-sensory exposure (mastication) increases initial hormone responses of insulin and PP (cephalic phase) and decreases ghrelin levels more independent of the ingestion rate and that this leads to a decrease in intake.

- InterventionsParticipants will eat chocolate custard with fudge pieces or fudge/caramel sauce (long vs. short orosensory exposure (OSE) in a slow or fast rate until they are satisfied. The 5 conditions of this study are: 1) short OSE, fast ingestion 2) short OSE, slow ingestion, 3) Long OSE, fast ingestion, 4) Long OSE slow ingestion and 5) control condition for the hormone measures: no treatment.
- Primary outcomeThe main study outcomes are intake from the chocolate custard (measured from ad libitum amount) and insulin, glucose, PP and ghrelin responses at fixed time points, that is T=-4, -2, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 (min) and variable time point, after the last bite at the end of the meal (t= +/- 10).

- Brief summaryFoods that can be eaten at a fast rate - with low mastication effort - lead to shorter orosensory exposure (OSE) per unit of food consumed. This results in a decreased satiation response and consequently higher subsequent food intake. Oro-sensory exposure and ingestion rate play an important role in controlling intake and are closely related. Based on the findings of our previous study we concluded that increasing mastication duration decreases intake. However, it remains unclear whether an increase in mastication duration leads to a decrease in food intake because of enhanced oro-sensory exposure or because of decreased ingestion rate. Therefore the mechanisms by which both factors act on food intake and the underlying physiological mechanisms remain unclear.
Therefore the objective of this study is to determine the independent and additive effects of oro-sensory exposure duration and ingestion rate on satiation in relation to the cephalic endocrine and metabolic responses.
