Testing Ways To Control Fullness To Address Obesity Problem

It is not the fullness, it is eating past the fullness - and that is not simply chemical.
By testing how molecules that slow down the breakdown of fat affect digestion in human volunteers, scientists at the Institute of Food Research (IFR) in Norwich in the UK hope to find new ways to control satiety, or the feeling of fullness, an important avenue in research to address the growing problem of obesity.

The project leader is Professor Peter Wilde, an expert in investigating ways to produce foods that delay fat digestion. Wilde and others at IFR have been studying food structures for the last 20 years. This includes looking at how fats interact with other ingredients to form emulsions.

The UK's Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) announced on Monday 5 September that they are awarding the project a grant of about £750,000 to find out whether specific emulsions will delay the digestion of fats eaten during meals.

The project team will also include leading experts on gut hormones, satiety, and fat digestion from the Imperial College London (ICL), the University of Leeds, and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre in Glasgow.
A waste.

Unless you are one of the researchers making money from this doomed to fail research.

Then it is a bonanza.
