Always staying close to the scientific community, the International Sweeteners Association (ISA) is delighted to have participated in the 54th Journées d’Etudes de l’AFDN (First French professional organisation of dieticians), which was held in Lille, France, from 26th to 28th May.
On Thursday, May 26, from 11:00am to 12:00pm ISA hosted a roundtable on the very interesting topics of the role of low calorie sweeteners in weight management and diabetes.
Led by renowned experts in the fields of nutrition, obesity and metabolic disease, Dr Jean-Michel Lecerf (Head office of the nutrition department of «Institut Pasteur de Lille») and Corinne Peirano (Dietician-Nutritionist, Sports Nutrition & Health), the discussion focused on how low calorie sweeteners can be useful in weight management, looking at their effect on appetite and sweet taste preference, as well as on the role of low calorie sweeteners in the diet of people with diabetes.
