VAS results for the subjective feelings of desire to eat. A) The VAS curves of the placebo and polydextrose (PDX) adjusted to zero intensity at 40 min (after the meal). B) The incremental areas under the curve (iAUC) for the placebo and PDX during the satiation period, i.e. between 0 min and 40 min (1218 ± 134 min.mm and 1034 ± 153 min.mm, respectively, P > 0.05). C) The iAUC for the placebo and PDX during the satiety period, i.e. between 40 min and 280 min (6167 ± 1052 min.mm and 4939 ± 814 min.mm, respectively, P > 0.05). VAS, visual analogue scales.
