Mechanisms for Sweetness
Journal Article 1/1/2012
This article reviews these data,with a particular focus on the elucidation of the sweet taste receptor, its location and actions in taste transduction in the mouth, its nontaste functions in the gastrointestinal tract (e.g., in enteroendocrine cells), and the brain circuitry involved in the sensory processing of sweet taste.
Sweetness and Food Preference
Journal Article 1/1/2012
Throughout evolution, sweetness has had a role in human nutrition, helping to orient feeding behavior toward foods providing both energy and essential nutrients. However, their use has led to further concerns that dissociating sweetness from energy may disrupt the balance between taste response, appetite, and consumption patterns, especially during development.
Sweetness, Satiation, and Satiety
Journal Article 1/1/2012
Many studies have examined the various sensory, cognitive, postingestive, and postabsorptive factors that can potentially contribute to the inhibition of eating, with careful attention to study design, crucial for correct interpretation of the results. This review discusses the satiating power of foods and drinks containing nutritive and nonnutritive sweeteners.
The Use of Low-Calorie Sweeteners by Adults: Impact on Weight Management
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The aim of this review is to gain clarity on the role of LCS in weight management and their impact on diet quality. In addition, because the majority of studies aimed at identifying associations between low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) and these outcomes are based on observational data, the pitfalls in designing and evaluating data from observational studies are also discussed.
The Use of Low-Calorie Sweeteners by Children: Implications for Weight Management
Book 1/1/2012
The rise in pediatric obesity since the 1970s has been well established in the United States and is becoming a major concern worldwide. As a potential means to help slow the obesity epidemic, low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) have gained attention as dietary tools to assist in adherence to weight loss plans or prevention of excess weight gain.
Workshop Summary
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The hope was expressed that researchers could begin to learn why individuals choose to use low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) or products containing them, because few data are presently available on this topic.
Persistence and Transferability of Noroviruses on and between Common Surfaces and Foods
Journal Article 1/1/2012
​The purpose of this study was to characterize the persistence and transferability of representative noroviruses Norwalk virus (NV), Snow Mountain virus (SMV), and murine norovirus 1 (MNV-1) on and between solid surfaces and foods.
Intakes of Some Vitamins from Food Sources Are Higher Among U.S. Adults Who Use Dietary Supplements
Journal Article 1/1/2012
The purpose of this analysis was to examine vitamin intakes from foods by supplement use and how dietary supplements contribute to meeting or exceeding the Dietary Reference Intakes.

Journal Article 1/1/2012
This publication summarizes 2011 AAACC International Annual Meeting Hot Topic Session provided an opportunity to explore the current scientific understanding of the nutritional and culinary value of including refined grains, added fibers, and bran in the diet.
The confusing world of dietary sugars; definition, intakes, food sources and international dietary recommendations
Journal Article 1/1/2012
This review defines sugars, provides the sugar content of major food sources, summarizes health concerns about dietary sugars, and compiles dietary guidelines for sugars issued by various organizations.
