  • Mechanisms behind the portion size effect-visibility and bite size

    Johnson, Susan; Burger, Kyle; Burger, Kyle (2017)
    Increases in portion size lead to increases in energy intake, yet the mechanisms behind this ‘portion size effect’ are unclear. This study tested possible mechanisms of the portion size effect i.e., bite size and visual cues in 30 over- and normal-weight individuals (15 men, 15 women). A 2x2 repeated measures, within-subject design was used to test the effects of portion size (410g vs. 820g of a pasta dish) and visual cues (blindfolded vs. visible) on energy intake. At each meal participants ...

    The Effect of Atmospheric Plasma on a Protein Thermal Shift Assay of Powdered Whey Protein Isolate

    Aguilar, Danielle (2018)
    Whey is both a dietary supplement as well as a food ingredient. It is a byproduct of the cheese making process, and it can be processed further to create three forms, namely whey isolate, whey concentrate and whey hydrolysate. Given whey’s complexity and applicability in the food, nutrition and health industries, understanding how changes to its structure contribute to or affect its function is of great interest. One method by which protein structure could be altered is via plasma-surface mod...

    The Effect of Atmospheric Plasma on the Perception of Taste and Mixability of Powdered Whey Protein Isolate

    Lightfoot, Heidi (2018)
    Powdered whey protein is most often used as a food supplement to enhance athletic performance, but it also has a role in health and wellness as well as the pharmaceutical sectors. Given the dynamic array of roles across several industries, understanding the functional characteristics of whey proteins is of great interest. Protein structure can be altered via plasma-surface modification (PSM), a method which is based on plasma as a means to alter a material’s surface structure and as such its ...

    Reward Region Responsivity Predicts Future Weight Gain and Further Evidence that the TaqIA Allele Moderates these Predictive Effects

    As no large prospective study has evaluated neural vulnerability factors that predict future weight gain we tested whether neural response to receipt and anticipated receipt of palatable food and monetary reward predicted weight gain over 3-year follow-up in originally healthy-weight adolescents and whether relations were moderated by the TaqIA polymorphism, which affects dopamine signaling capacity. 153 adolescent humans completed functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) paradigms assess...

    The Effect of Atmospheric Plasma on the Shipping Stability of Powdered Whey Protein Isolate

    Birnbaum, Michael (2018)
    Whey protein powders are the most nutritionally available proteins on the market. As such, their accessibility has led to a wide commercialization including online retail, which in turn has resulted in these products being exposed to several shipping and handling conditions that could adversely affect their structural integrity and therefore their efficacy and nutritional value. The objective of this study was to investigate the ability of commercially available whey protein powder isolate to...
