Research Project: Almonds Snacks and Satiety: A Randomized Intervention Trial Examining Acute and Chronic Effects

Location: Obesity and Metabolism Research

Project Number: 2032-51530-025-19-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 9, 2019
End Date: May 31, 2021

Objective:
To determine if regular almond consumption, as a snack, increases satiety compared to the control snack using an acute meal challenge protocol in the laboratory and also monitoring food intake and satiety in a free-living, natural setting.

Approach:
The proposed study will be a randomized intervention trial that will facilitate the comparison of two interventions within and between individual participants. The proposed interventions are 1) almonds consumed as snacks, and 2) a cereal/pretzel mix consumed as snacks. The snack intervention will last approximately 4 weeks, with satiety and craving measures estimated at the beginning and end of that duration.
