New Study Confirms the Satiating Effect of Litesse® Polydextrose and its Potential Role in Appetite Control

A number of human studies have documented the satiating effect of Litesse® polydextrose, and demonstrated that it can help consumers to reduce their caloric intake. These results are supported by a new study conducted by the Functional Food Centre of Oxford Brookes University, and published in the European Journal of Nutrition (Eur J Nutr  2012, June 21), which recorded a 10 percent reduction in energy intake at a monitored lunch following consumption of a polydextrose preload 60 minutes prior to the lunch.

The study team concluded that polydextrose “has the potential to reduce food intake” and “could be potentially used for appetite control”. Results of a further positive study are expected to be published later this year.

Part of the DuPont Danisco ingredient range, Litesse® is a recognised prebiotic fibre that contributes just one calorie per gram and mediates a low glycaemic impact. These factors, combined with its ability to enhance satiety, mean that it can be used to develop innovative foods that are both satisfying and lower in calories.

“Successful weight management is ultimately about balancing the energy we consume as food with the energy that we expend through exercise. Consuming less at mealtimes and selecting less energy dense foods can help individuals to achieve this balance. As Litesse® contains 75% less calories than sugar, increases satiety and helps to reduce the desire to eat, it is an ideal ingredient for reducing sugars and calories in products focused on weight management.” says Michael Bond, health platform leader, DuPont Nutrition & Health.

Faced with growing calls to play a more active role in tackling the global obesity epidemic, food manufacturers can retain maximum formulation flexibility when using Litesse®. Available in three grades, this special carbohydrate is suitable for almost all food and beverage applications.
