Abstract

To investigate the specificity of satiety in man, subjects (n=32) rated the pleasantness of the taste of eight foods, were then given one of the foods to eat for lunch, and re-rated the pleasantness of the taste of the eight foods 2 and 20 min after the end of the meal. The pleasantness of the food eaten decreased more than that of the foods not eaten (p<0.001). In a second experiment it was shown that this relative specificity of satiety influenced subsequent food intake. Before a first course, subjects (n=24) rated their liking for the taste of eight foods, were then given one of the foods to eat for lunch, and 2 min after finishing eating re-rated their liking for the taste of the eight foods. Again liking decreased more for the food eaten than for foods not eaten. These changes in liking for the foods eaten and not eaten were highly correlated (p<0.001) with the amounts of those foods eaten in an unexpected second course. Thus in man satiety can be partly specific to foods eaten and this specificity may be an important determinant of the foods selected for consumption.
