Metabolism and Glucose Sensitivity Disrupted When Low-Cal Sweetener Consumed with Added Carbs

Studies in human volunteers by a Yale University-led research team have shown that consuming sucralose-sweetened drinks to which another, tasteless carbohydrate has been added results in adverse changes in insulin sensitivity and decreased brain responses to sweet taste. The researchers say their findings could help to explain discrepancies in previous study results, and suggest that “consumption of diet drinks with meals should be counseled against.”
