Orange juice contains sugars and flavonoids that may influence energy and macronutrient intake and consequently body weight. Although some studies suggest that 100% fruit juices are fully associated with excess weight, other studies show an association with a lower body mass index and eating healthier. Thus, we intend to study the effect of orange juice on satiety and food intake and its influence on body weight. The objective of this project is to evaluate the effect of ingestion of orange juice fresh and processed and pasteurized, on markers of satiety and food intake in individuals with normal weight and overweight. The volunteers, adult men and women, will be submitted to three experimental phase: (1) acute intake of fresh orange juice, (2) orange juice pasteurized and (3) a placebo solution, followed by collection of blood and urine, and subjective evaluation of satiety and food intake for 24 hours. It will be quantified markers of satiety (leptin, adiponectin, ghrelin, glucose and insulin) and citrus flavonoids in the blood serum and urine for each experimental phase. (AU)
