Ingredient Innovations Backing up satiety benefits ublished studies are backing up claims that certain ingredients may fill you up. The satiety benefits of oatmeal, almonds and red peppers were the focus of recent articles. A study appearing on-line Jan. 23 in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism found oatmeal had a greater satiety effect than corn flakes, especially in overweight subjects. Scientists from the New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center in Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital randomly assigned 18 normal weight people and 18 overweight people to each receive three different breakfasts with 350 calories or similar amounts of carbohydrates, fat and liquid. The three breakfasts were quick-cook oatmeal, sugared corn flakes and a control breakfast of 1.5 cups of water. The scientists obtained ratings of hunger and fullness at different intervals before and after breakfast. The people ate lunch three hours after breakfast. Blood samples were collected after each of the appetite ratings to assess levels of glucose, insulin, acetaminophen P Studies investigate the effects of oatmeal, almonds and hot peppers 32 FOODBUSINESS NEWS ® (a marker showing how quickly the breakfast emptied from the stomach into the intestine) and hormones related to appetite. "Our results show that despite eating the same number of calories at breakfast, satiety values were significantly greater after consuming oatmeal compared to sugared corn flakes," said Allan Geliebter, Ph.D., a research psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital. "Interestingly, the results were more pronounced for the participants who were overweight, suggesting that overweight individuals may be more responsive to the satiety effects of the dietary fiber in the oatmeal." When people ate oatmeal, they consumed 31% fewer calories at lunch than when they consumed sugared corn flakes or water. Among the overweight people, the ones who ate oatmeal consumed 50% fewer calories at lunch. Benefits of almonds and peppers Almonds and hot red peppers also were shown to have satiety benefits in two studies published last year. A study appearing on-line Sept. 3, 2014, in the European Journal of Nutrition found almonds have acute satiating effects that are likely to result in no net increase in energy (calories) consumed over a day. In the study 32 healthy women consumed a standard breakfast and then either a mid-morning snack of 28 grams of almonds, a mid-morning snack of 42 grams of almonds or no mid-morning snack. The women then ate lunch and dinner. They were told to eat until they felt comfortably full. Overall, a similar amount of calories was consumed on all three test days, which indicated the women compensated for the 173 calories consumed through 28 grams of almonds and the 259 calories consumed through 42 grams of almonds. "We expected whole almonds to be a food that provides satiety because of their combination of protein, fiber and good fats," said Sarah Hull, M.S., lead researcher of the study and a principal scientist in nutrition research at Leatherhead Food Research in Surrey, United Kingdom. "However, it was interesting to see the midmorning snack provided a longlasting effect on appetite at dinner, not only at lunchtime." The Almond Board of California, Modesto, Calif., supported the research. The study suggests February 10, 2015
