Abstract

SATIN, or SATiety INnovation, is a 5-year European-funded research project to develop and test new food products with satiating qualities to help control appetite, manage weight and combat obesity. It is a €6million Framework 7 project funded by the European Commission, designed to develop foods that regulate appetite by reducing hunger, accelerating within-meal satiation and enhancing between meal satiety. The SATIN project employs novel food processing methods to modify food structure to produce functional foods for weight management. This article provides a useful summary of the work plans and describes how industry and academia will work together to produce products ready to commercialise and with proven consumer benefits. The SATIN project involves seven small- to medium-sized enterprises, four industry and seven academic partners. SATIN will also seek to educate consumers and other stakeholders about satiety to optimise the impact of weight management outcomes.
