The effect of satiety on our body weight
Overweight, obesity, and associated diseases represent a rapidly growing problem in worlds' population. A victorious strategy can be to develop foods that combine nutrients to induce an early and more intensified feeling of satiety, leading to a reduced energy intake.
The satiating effect of a wheat protein associated with L-Arg has been demonstrated in a clinical study. A food formulation, such as meal replacement bars, that include a small quantity of wheat peptides can help weight management.
