Fiber-Added Foods May Not Stem Hunger

Of course not.
Fiber-enriched processed foods promise a healthier version of snacks, but they might not keep hunger at bay, a small study suggests. The researchers found no hunger-limiting effects of chocolate bars containing four different "functional fibers," such as inulin - aka "chicory root extract" - commonly found in fiber-enriched processed foods.

Overall, the women in the study were just as hungry come lunch time as they were on a day when they ate a low-fiber bar for breakfast. And their food intake for the rest of the day was similar as well.
There is more to the sensation of hunger than the feeling of fullness. No surprise here.
