The science behind food cravings

The science behind food cravings | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
Exhibition examines the science behind food cravings
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

Notice the term “anti-trigger” used in the video (at 1:22). This is a way of avoiding a usually advertising/neuromarketing driven urge for a person to make an impulse purchase - such as suddenly stopping in a high street to buy certain food once that person has been exposed to a certain smell.

 

In our last year’s  blog post reply on the Centre For Connected Health we introduced a similar term referred to as “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. You can read more from here:

Jo,

A great post. Blended delicately, neuroscience, marketing and advertising can produce the sweetest pill that preventive care of today could wish for.

 

A while back at my company we coined the term “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. This came about as a result of trying to formulate an effective evidence-based model to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the field of chronic disorders.

 

Needless to say implemented properly insight of this nature offers a tremendously healthy ROI. Why else would companies such Coca-Cola & McDonalds spend as much money as they do in successfully trying to encourage us to buy into their message and product?

 

Sepe Sehati,
ClickTell Consulting

Fructan, Rather Than Gluten, Induces Symptoms in Patients With Self-reported Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Fructan, Rather Than Gluten, Induces Symptoms in Patients With Self-reported Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is characterized by symptom improvement after gluten
withdrawal in absence of celiac disease. The mechanisms of non-celiac gluten sensitivity
are unclear, and there are no biomarkers for this disorder. Foods with gluten often
contain fructans, a type of fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols.
We aimed to investigate the effect of gluten and fructans separately in individuals
with self-reported gluten sensitivity.
