Brain Capable of Differentiating between Sugar and Artificial Sweetener: Study

If the market condition is assessed then it will be found that artificial sweeteners are present for a number of years now. People take the same not only in beverages, but make deserts and other items using them instead of sugar.

People do the act thinking that it will compensate the sugar necessity in the body. Not only this, but will also reduce obesity levels. But such is not the same, as per a study carried out by a group of researchers from Yale University School of Medicine USA.

According to the study, it has been unveiled that body is very well aware of the difference between sugar and artificial sweeteners. Brain can distinguish between sugar and artificial sweeteners even when the latter one is sweeter.

In order to reach at the above given conclusion, the study researchers have looked at the brain signals that were able to know the difference between sugar and artificial sweeteners.

These signals are the ones that regulate the release of the dopamine. To talk about dopamine then it is a chemical that is associated with an array of procedures like control behaviour and emotional response.

The study was carried on mice. "According to the data, when we apply substances that interfere with a critical step of the 'sugar-to-energy pathway', the interest of the animals in consuming artificial sweetener decreases significantly", said lead researcher Ivan de Araujo.
