Impact of dietary sucrose on adiposity and glucose homeostasis in C57BL/6J mice depends on mode of ingestion: liquid or solid – ScienceDirect
• Liquid sucrose intake was associated with increased energy consumption and greater body fat gain.
• The same level of sucrose in a solid diet did not lead to higher energy intake or elevated body weight and fatness.
• Elevated adiposity was correlated with impairment of glucose homeostasis and insulin resistance.
• Glucose homeostasis and insulin resistance were related to adiposity and the mode but not the level of sucrose intake.
