A purported link between dietary fibre and appetite has been shown not to stand up to systematic review. The current study assesses the impact on appetite and food intake of a novel co-processed ingredient containing a viscous fibre and whole-grain high-amylose corn flour, a source of resistant starch. The data demonstrate a robust acute satiety effect.
