August 20, 2012

The new European Journal of Nutrition study demonstrated a 10% reduction in caloric intake at a monitored lunch following consumption of a polydextrose 60 minutes prior to the lunch.

A new study published in the European Journal of Nutrition adds to a body of research documenting a satiety-promoting effect of Litesse brand polydextrose-and a subsequent reduction in caloric intake, reports Litesse supplier Dupont Nutrition & Health (Reigate, Surrey, UK). The new European Journal of Nutrition study demonstrated a 10% reduction in caloric intake at a monitored lunch following consumption of a polydextrose 60 minutes prior to the lunch.

Part of the DuPont Danisco ingredient range, Litesse is a soluble fiber and a low-calorie specialty carbohydrate and prebiotic fiber that contributes just one cal/g and has a low glycemic impact.

“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 for DuPont Nutrition & Health.
