Sugar sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption is decreasing, partially due to the rise in popularity of low-calorie carbonated beverages. The objective of this study was to determine how carbonation (taste irritation), flavor, sweetness, or a combination of those factors impacted hunger and thirst responses. Healthy weight adults consumed six different beverages varying in carbonation, sweetness, and flavor. Blood samples were collected at baseline, and again at 10 and 45 minutes post beverage consumption. Blood was analyzed for ghrelin and glucose at each time point. Perceived satiety was measured at each time point. Participants also completed a sensory of analysis of each beverage during consumption. Data was analyzed and presented at the forum.
