Study Results from Nutrition & Health Broaden Understanding of Gastroenterology



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Gastroenterology Week -- Current study results on Health and Medicine have been published. According to news reporting out of Atlanta, Georgia, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Little is known about how CO2 affects neural processing of taste. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the effects of carbonation on brain processing of sweet stimuli, which has relevance to studies of food selection and satiety."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Nutrition & Health, "The presence of carbonation produced an overall decrease in the neural processing of sweetness-related signals, especially from sucrose. CO2 reduced the neural processing of sucrose more than that of artificial sweeteners."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These findings might be relevant to dietary interventions that include noncaloric beverages, whereas the combination of CO2 and sucrose might increase consumption of sucrose."
