Washington: The aroma of foods could become a new weapon in the battle of the bulge by quenching hunger pangs.
The report cites several possible applications, including developing foods that release more aroma during chewing or developing aromas that have a more powerful effect in triggering feelings of fullness. Efforts now have expanded to include foods that release hunger-quenching aromas during chewing. Molecules that make up a food`s aroma apparently do so by activating areas of the brain that signal fullness, says a release of the American Chemcial Society (ACS). The study appeared in the ACS` Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. PTI
