    @solokim?

    Among dozens of Google hits on the keywords “sweetness and satiety”, I came across a lot of scholarly literature on the topic

    The summary of one 2009 PubMed article in particular published by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says…

    “…there is emerging evidence that selected NNS[1] may stimulate the release of satiety hormones…”

    That piqued the following question in my mind about the extreme sweetness of powdered food products that a lot of people report…

    Q. — What role does the level of artificial sweetness in Solo play in achieving the perception of satiety a person feels from drinking Solo?

    Thanks in advance for your transparency and your candid reply, @solokim.

    Hi LeggyMountrumpian

    What an interesting question! Solo contains sucralose and stevia which sweeten the flavour of Solo. These also act as a carbohydrate within the drink which help to promote satiety and fullness, rather than just being a sweetener.

    I hope this answers your question!
