Abstract

As the proportion of the UK population who may be consideredoverweight or obese is increasing, questions about the impact of foodsand food constituents upon appetite and satiety become increasinglyimportant. Briefly reviews some of the literature on the effects ofdietary fibre or, more correctly, nonstarch polysaccharides onsatiety. A number of experimental approaches have been used toinvestigate this issue and, according to the mode of administration ofdietary fibre used, a variable outcome on satiety has been demonstrated.However, the evidence overall is quite strongly in favour of anenhancement of satiety with dietary fibre. Unfortunately, clinicaltrials of the effects of dietary fibre have revealed only modestimprovements in weight loss and further work is needed in order totarget those individuals who demonstrate the greatest response.
