Abstract

The effects of a sucrose drink (160 kcals/40 grams of cane sugar) on mood state (Profile of Mood States) were examined over time in a between-subjects, blind placebo design. Orosensory factors were virtually eliminated due to the prior use of a benzocaine anaesthetic lozenge. The ingestion of sucrose failed to have any substantial effect on mood immediately after intake or 30 and 60 rain thereafter, although two female subjects reported an increase in energy at 30 min. There was no evidence that the carbohydrate preload increased hunger or eating, rather a delay in food intake was noted subsequent to the ingestion of sugar which was not found following ingestion of saccharin or water.
