Measuring appetite and food intake

The Satiety Quotient is a formula for measuring the satiating effect of a particular food. The Satiety Quotient is calculated by dividing the difference between the hunger rating (before and after eating) by the calories.

This study confirmed that the Satiety Quotient performs better than other methodologies used to measure appetite and food intake.

Foods that rate high on the Satiety Quotient are foods that have high levels of protein, fiber and water. Foods that rank low are high fat and sugar foods.
