 Sweetness Intensity Has No Influence on Overall Caloric Intake

Despite the fact that taste plays an important role in dietary choice, perceived sweetness intensity alone have no significant influence on food behavior and dietary intake in young adults, a new study has found.

For the study, students enrolled in a food and nutrition course at Deakin University, Australia and completed a food and diet questionnaire, two 24-hour food records, a food variety survey, and a perceived sweetness intensity measurement test which consisted of the subjects being given a sucrose solution to taste and they had to rate how sweet they felt the solution was.

Out of the 130 students who participated, no correlation was observed between perceived sweetness and total caloric intake.

This was the first study of its kind to investigate the correlation between sweetness intensity and specific food behaviors and nutrient intake and no associations were found between the two.

The study has been published in the Journal of Food Science.
