Obesity is a global public health challenge. In UK alone, over 60% of the adult population are
overweight or obese. This is largely caused by a combination of overconsumption and a sedentary
lifestyle. In most people this leads to a long term weight gain as they age. Treating obesity and its
associated conditions costs the NHS up to £6bn per year and is rising.
Controlling appetite has been shown to be a critical factor to help individuals control energy intake and
hence maintain a healthy body weight. Therefore there has been increased interest in the development
of foods which reduce appetite and prolong satiety. However, more research is still required to fully
understand how different foods contribute to appetite reduction.
