Abstract

The main objective of this study was to evaluate preadolescents' preference for non-fat chocolate milk, sweetened with Stevia (Enliten®), sucrose, and/or Nutraflora®. Preadolescent middle school children participated in the study. A survey was carried out with the panelists about their chocolate milk preference, frequency of milk consumption, and choice. Products combined milk with sugar and Stevia, non-sugar-added [NSA] with Stevia, NSA with Stevia and Nutraflora®, Control 1 (20 g sugar), and Control 2 (28 g sugar) and were evaluated with a structured 7-point hedonic scale. In sum, children preferred chocolate milk with sweeter flavor.
