  Purpose

The investigators hypothesize that different types of starch vary in their effects on appetite, blood sugar and food intake. In this study, subjects consumed five soups containing 50 g of whole grain, high amylose corn, regular corn or maltodextrin starches or no added starch at one week intervals. The investigators measured food intake at 120 minutes, appetite and blood sugar.
