University leads £6 million EU project to tackle obesity
Date:3/28/2012

The University of Liverpool is leading a EUR 8million European project to develop and test new food products with satiating qualities to help control appetite, manage weight and combat obesity.

Satiety-enhanced foods can help with energy intake and weight control. SATIN - SATiety INnovation is a five year, EU funded project that draws together experts from academia and industry to produce new food products using the latest processing innovation techniques. Exploiting better understanding of the biological processes in the stomach and the brain that underpin what makes us feel "full", the project will evaluate whether this approach is a viable weight management tool.

Obesity is a major public health issue facing the European Union and reducing it is a priority for all European governments. It is estimated that 60% of men, 50% of women and 25% of children in the UK will be obese by 2050. Obesity has a severe impact on people's health, increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and heart and liver disease. The direct costs to the NHS (National Health Service) caused by obesity are estimated to be 4.2 billion per year in the UK. In several European countries, the cost of obesity has already reached 5% of public health expenditure.

Professor Jason Halford, Director of the University's Human Ingestive Behaviour laboratory, said: "People who are obese find successful weight loss and maintenance notoriously difficult. Obesity is typically a consequence of overconsumption driven by an individual's natural sensitivity to food stimuli and the pleasure derived from eating high fat and high sugar foods.

"Obese and overweight people are less likely to feel full after eating, partly because of the energy-dense foods they prefer have a reduced impact on gastrointestinal hormone signals that help promote feelings of satisfaction and fullness."
