Low calorie sweeteners do not increase appetite


Author(s): An interview with Dr France Bellisle, Université Paris 13, France; Université Laval, Québec, Canada | Posted: 15 January 2015

Dr France Bellisle summarises in this video the main conclusions of her review of literature on appetite for sweet taste, energy intake and the use of low calorie sweeteners, and outlines that based on a body of evidence from human studies low calorie sweeteners do not increase our liking for sweetness, but rather research up to date suggests that they actually lead to a decrease in appetite for sweet products.
