Food texture and food intake: the role of oral sensory exposure.

  title={Food texture and food intake: the role of oral sensory exposure.},
  author={N. Zijlstra},
Background and objective: In view of the growing epidemic of obesity, it is important to investigate factors which influence food intake. Food texture has been shown to play a role in food intake regulation but underlying explaining mechanisms are unknown. The aim of this thesis was to determine the effect of food texture on satiation (assessed as ad libitum food intake) and to investigate the mediating role of oral sensory exposure and gastro-intestinal physiology in this effect. Methods: We…

Bij het ouder worden neemt de energiebehoefte af. De daling van de voedselinname is echter groter dan verklaard kan worden door een verminderde energiebehoefte. Hieraan ligt het verouderingsproces


Investigating the effect of texture differences in 3 pairs of solid foods on satiation
The texture of food plays an important role in food intake regulation. In previous studies we showed a clear effect of viscosity on satiation (Zijlstra et al. Int J Obes 2008;32:676–83). We do not
Effect of sensory perception of foods on appetite and food intake: a review of studies on humans
Results from studies investigating the link between the sensory perception of food and human appetite regulation are reviewed, finding that increasing the food variety can increase food and energy intake and in the short to medium term alter energy balance.
Effect of viscosity on appetite and gastro-intestinal hormones
The results of this study show a similar response of the gastro-intestinal hormones CCK-8, ghrelin and GLP-1 after a fixed preload of a liquid and semi-solid product similar in energy- and macronutrient composition.
The effect of viscosity on ad libitum food intake
Products different in viscosity but similar in palatability, macronutrient composition and energy density lead to significant differences in intake, partially explained by the higher eating rate of liquids.
Effects of food form on appetite and energy intake in lean and obese young adults
Food rheology exerts an independent effect on energy intake, and dietary compensation for beverages is weaker than for solid food forms of comparable nutrient content, Thus, they pose a greater risk for promoting positive energy balance.
Carbohydrates and human appetite.
The experimental evidence suggests that it is possible to design high-carbohydrate diets that provide good nutrition with adequate control over appetite and a beneficial effect on body weight.

Several clinical trials have shown that reducing the ED of the diet by the addition of water-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables was associated with substantial weight loss even when patients were not told to restrict calories.
An investigation of the role of oro-sensory stimulation in sugar satiety?
Results suggest that enhanced oro-sensory stimulation from chewing the sweet food was involved in the suppression of food intake and energy intake from a test lunch was significantly reduced after consuming the pastilles after ingestion of the preloads.
Intake during repeated exposure to low- and high-energy-dense yogurts by different means of consumption.
No energy intake compensation was observed after repeated exposure to yogurt products, and differences in ad libitum yogurt intake could be explained by eating rate, which was affected by the different means of consumption.
Food Form and Portion Size Affect Postprandial Appetite Sensations and Hormonal Responses in Healthy, Nonobese, Older Adults
Great hunger and reduced satiety with accompanying glucose, insulin, and ghrelin following the beverage vs. solid meals, and to some extent, in smaller vs. larger portions suggest that appetite control is influenced by food form and portion size in older adults.
