Eating avocados can reduce food cravings and diabetes risk
Washington: A new research has suggested that addition of fresh Hass Avocado to a meal may help to reduce hunger and the desire to eat in overweight adults.
The study also showed that including avocado to a meal resulted in smaller post-meal rises in insulin compared to eating a meal without avocado.
Findings were based on a Hass Avocado Board (HAB) supported clinical study conducted by researchers at Loma Linda University that investigated the effects of incorporating fresh Hass Avocado into a lunch meal on satiety, blood sugar and insulin response, and subsequent food intake.
"While more studies are needed, this research provides promising clues and a basis for future research to determine avocados' effect on satiety, glucose and blood insulin response," said Nikki Ford, Nutrition Director, HAB.
Ford said that this research will contribute to a deeper knowledge on Hass avocados' potential positive role in weight management and diabetes.
The study was presented at the IUNS 20th International Congress of Nutrition, in Spain.
