SATIN (SATiety INnovation)


SATIN (SATiety INnovation) is a 5-year EU FP7 funded project which draws expertise from a consortium of seven academic partners, seven small to medium-sized enterprises, and four industrial partners, all based across the EU. The aim of the SATIN research project is to develop novel ‘satiety enhancing’ food products by means of identifying key ingredients, and processing methods that induce earlier satiation, prolong satiety and suppress appetite, and in the longer term, may influence energy balance, body composition and may aid with weight management.

Our research group will examine the impact of these novel satiety enhancing products on appetite control in a series of acute- and medium-term trials. As part of these trials we will use our multi-level research platform to establish the acute, and enduring actions of the food products on satiation, satiety, and the hedonic control of eating, and examine their potential to aid with exercise-induced weight loss. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration.
