Populations that report high fiber consumption demonstrate lower rates of obesity. Enhanced satiety may play a key role in this relationship. The colonic fermentation of fibers is theorized to influence satiety and food intake. Short chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS) are rapidly fermentable fibers that can easily be added to foods to impact these parameters.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the satiety response of scFOS and its ability to decrease food intake.

- Satiety response using visual analogue scales [ Time Frame: 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240 minutes postprandially ]Satiety response was measured using subjective perceptions of hunger, fullness, satisfaction, and prospective food intake evaluated by previously validated visual analogue scales (VAS).
- Ad libitum food intake [ Time Frame: 240 minutes postprandially and over 24 hours ]
- Breath hydrogen response [ Time Frame: 0, 240 minutes ]
- Gastrointestinal tolerance using visual analogue scales (VAS) [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]Subjective ratings of bloating, stool consistency, and flatulence on VAS. A stool count was also recorded.
