Although low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) have long been considered an important tool for providing sweet taste with low or no calories, there has been much debate over their role in weight management and reducing energy intake. A new in-depth look at the evidence may put much of that debate to rest. Join PepsiCo Health & Nutrition Sciences for a conversation with Katherine Appleton, PhD, of Bournemouth University, an author of the evidence based assessment, and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RDN, CDCES, CDN, on these new findings and the practical applications for registered dietitians.
Moderator: Alissa Wilson, MPH, PhD, RD, Director, Health & Nutrition Sciences at PepsiCo
Katherine Appleton, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Bournemouth University will provide an in-depth analysis of the effects of low-calorie sweeteners on weight management and energy intake.
