The objectives of this work were to investigate short-term appetite-reducing effects of an innovative low-fat yogurt enriched with protein (8 g/serving) and fibre (2.6-2.9 g/serving). Two studies were conducted using randomised cross-over designs. Healthy women consumed a mid-morning snack consisting of either the test or the control yogurt product (Study 1, n = 24: iso-energetic, not iso-weight conditions; Study 2, n = 121: iso-weight, not iso-energetic conditions) under laboratory conditions. Subjective appetite ratings (of hunger, fullness, desire to eat and prospective consumption) were recorded throughout the morning; sensory and hedonic ratings were also collected. In Study 2, two hours after consumption of the dairy snack, subsequent food intake at lunch was also measured. The test product reduced subjective appetite compared to the control (all ratings, P < 0.05). Energy intake at lunch was reduced by 274 kJ after the test compared to the control (P < 0.001). These two studies demonstrated that a low-fat dairy product enriched with protein and fibre can significantly reduce short-term appetite. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
