Edible ‘stop signs’ in food could help control overeating

Food and Brand Lab Director Brian Wansink found that inserting edible serving size markers in tubes of chips helped curb overeating among college students.

Very interesting article on an experiment done by Cornell university, whole article can be found here.

“As part of an experiment carried out on two groups of college students (98 students total) while they were watching video clips in class, researchers from Cornell’s Food and Brand Lab served tubes of Lays Stackables, some of which contained chips dyed red.”
