Fiber contributes to post-ingestive satiety. This result is clear from many studies (Holt et al., 1995; Delargy et al., 1997; Marlett et al., 2002). The mechanisms through which fiber exerts these effects are, however, less clear. These mechanisms may include slower gastric emptying, increasing bulk, and/or increased transient time and nutrient exposure in the gut. The fiber content of foods also contributes to a lower glycemic index, which may facilitate the control of food intake (Jenkins et al., 2002; Rizkalla et al., 2002).
