Abstract: Lentils have potential to increase satiety due to their unique nutritional profile, which could support body weight management. Since lentil consumption is low in North America, replacing commonly consumed food ingredients with lentils within familiar food products is worth studying. Two randomized crossover studies were used to determine the effects of replacing wheat and rice with green or red lentils within muffins and chilies on satiety over a 180-minute period, food intake at an ad libitum pizza test meal, and 24-hour energy intake in healthy adults (n=24). Results showed no significant differences between muffin treatments; however, replacing rice with green, but not red lentils within the chili matrix significantly increased satiety. These data show that substituting white rice with green lentils within a food matrix such as chili may help to increase satiety but may not translate to a decrease in subsequent food intake.
