Experience the taste sensations of different carbohydrates. What are

some foods that satisfy your sweetness sensation?


 Even though fiber contains calories, albeit less than half of other

carbohydrates, why do we generally discount its caloric contribution

from our diets?


. How long a person feels full after eating a carbohydrate-rich meal

depends on the type of carbohydrate consumed and what other

nutrients are in the meal.

 Conduct an experiment and determine how

long you feel full after eating a candy bar; after eating a slice of wholegrain bread; after eating an apple; and after eating a potato. Compare

your results with your classmates and discuss why some of these

carbohydrate foods make you feel full longer than others.
