Example

Rats start out showing a preference for HFCS, compared to sucrose. Preference thought to be due low concentrations of glucose polymers. However, there appears a shift in preference from HFCS to sucrose, which may be due to different post-oral effects of sucrose and HFCS - THIS MEANS EXPERIENCE OF HFCS MAY BE BEHIND BEHAVIOURAL ALTERATIONS.
RELATIVELY SMALL SHIFT IN PREFERENCE.
THEREFORE: PALATABILITY FACTORS MAY NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DIFFERENCES IN WEIGHT GAIN, AS MAY BE SEEN WHEN TESTING PREFERENCES FOR THESE SWEETENERS. [1]
