Short-Term Consumption of #Sucralose with, but Not without, #Carbohydrate Impairs Neural and Metabolic Sensitivity to Sugar in Humans

There is a general consensus that overconsumption of sugar-sweetened beverages contributes to the prevalence of obesity and related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes (T2D). Whether a similar relationship exists for no- or low-calorie “diet” drinks is a subject of intensive debate and controversy. Here, we demonstrate that consuming seven sucralose-sweetened beverages with, but not without, a carbohydrate over 10 days decreases insulin sensitivity in … Continue reading Short-Term Consumption of #Sucralose with, but Not without, #Carbohydrate Impairs Neural and Metabolic Sensitivity to Sugar in Humans

#Beverage Consumption and Longitudinal Changes in Lipoprotein Concentrations and Incident #Dyslipidemia in US Adults: The Framingham Heart Study

Limited data are available on the prospective relationship between beverage consumption and plasma lipid and lipoprotein concentrations. Two major sources of sugar in the US diet are sugar‐sweetened beverages (SSBs) and 100% fruit juices. Low‐calorie sweetened beverages are common replacements.. ..We found that regular (>1 serving per day) versus low (<1 serving per month) SSB consumption was associated with a greater mean decrease in high‐density … Continue reading #Beverage Consumption and Longitudinal Changes in Lipoprotein Concentrations and Incident #Dyslipidemia in US Adults: The Framingham Heart Study

#Sugar-Sweetened and Diet Beverage Consumption in Philadelphia One Year after the Beverage Tax

..Philadelphians were slightly more likely to decrease their frequency of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption (39.2% vs. 33.5%), and slightly less likely to increase their frequency of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption (38.9% vs. 43.0%). The effects of the tax estimated in the adjusted difference-in-difference analysis were very small (for example, changes in monthly sugar-sweetened beverage consumption in Philadelphia relative to comparison cities was −3.03 times or −51.65 ounces) … Continue reading #Sugar-Sweetened and Diet Beverage Consumption in Philadelphia One Year after the Beverage Tax

Impact of dietary #sucrose on #adiposity and glucose homeostasis in C57BL/6J mice depends on mode of ingestion: liquid or solid

..Since in humans consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages has been widely implicated, we investigated whether the mode of ingestion (solid or liquid) had different impacts on body weight regulation and glucose homeostasis Consumption of sucrose-sweetened water, but not equivalent levels of solid sucrose, led to body fat gain in C57BL/6 mice. Glucose intolerance was positively correlated to body fatness, rather than sucrose intake. Conclusions Our data … Continue reading Impact of dietary #sucrose on #adiposity and glucose homeostasis in C57BL/6J mice depends on mode of ingestion: liquid or solid

Changes in Consumption of Sugary Beverages and Artificially #Sweetened Beverages and Subsequent Risk of Type 2 #Diabetes: Results From Three Large Prospective U.S. Cohorts of Women and Men

artificially sweetened beverages (ASBs) ..After adjustment for BMI and initial and changes in diet and lifestyle covariates, increasing total sugary beverage intake (including both sugar-sweetened beverages and 100% fruit juices) by >0.50 serving/day over a 4-year period was associated with a 16% (95% CI 1%, 34%) higher diabetes risk in the subsequent 4 years. Increasing ASB consumption by >0.50 serving/day was associated with 18% (2–36%) … Continue reading Changes in Consumption of Sugary Beverages and Artificially #Sweetened Beverages and Subsequent Risk of Type 2 #Diabetes: Results From Three Large Prospective U.S. Cohorts of Women and Men
