This session will be co-organised by the task forces on Appetite Regulation, Weight Management in Public Health, Metabolic Syndrome & Diabetes and Risk Assessment of Chemicals in Food.
The session will start by addressing scientific considerations of the benefits of satiety to consumers before looking at the determinants of obesity and the metabolic syndrome, topics of work realised by ILSI Europe. Finally a benefit risk analysis of macronutrients replacement will be covered. At the end of the session there will be room to discuss potential directions for further research in the context of the covered topics.
