ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to assess the effect of nutritional status of the organism on the sensory specific satiety (SSS) in young adults and to determine the relationship of blood glucose concentration and SSS. The study was carried out on a set of 18 individuals (6 persons in each group with BMI values: <20, 20-25 and >25 kg/m2, respectively), which rated the pleasantness of foodstuffs with different sensory properties (milk chocolate, crackers, grapefruit and apples) before and after ad libitum consumption of milk chocolate. The SSS was observed in all the tested individuals, irrespective of their BMI value. No statistically significant correlation was found between the change in blood glucose concentration 2 minutes after the consumption of chocolate and the occurrence of SSS. A dependence between these parameters was found 60 min after chocolate consumption.
