Abstract
This study aimed to evaluate the relationship of sweet taste perception with overweight and obesity among workers in some industrial areas. Participants were 63 workers (mean age: 57.8±7.8 years), who were divided into three subgroups based on sweet taste evaluation using a sweet taste assessment tool provided by Ministry of Food and Drug Safety: unsweet group (n=25), medium sweet group (n=27), and sweet group (n=11). There was no significant difference in body mass index (BMI), and any work-related variables among the three groups; however, the difference between subjective perception and objective perception for sweet tastes is statistically different. We also found slight or fair agreement between subjective and objective sweet taste perception of the subjects (weighted kappa value 0.34~0.43). The present study provided measuring objective sweet taste perception may be useful for assessing the risk of high sugar consumption and for improving undesirable dietary behaviors, and management of non-communicable disease among workers.
