Standard procedures for researching satiety often rely on environments more closely aligned to clinical settings rather than those typically encountered in food servicescapes. The Culinary Arts Studio at the University of Brighton provides a more authentic context in which to conduct satiety investigations. A recent collaboration with the University of Sussex used these facilities to explore how appetite control can be enhanced by manipulating expectations of satiety. This poster considers the benefits of using more authentic food consumption spaces and emerging technologies to gain further insights in to eating behaviour in restaurant settings. These benefits include the use of video data to analyze patterns of food choice, social interactions and reactions to menus that may impact on food consumption. Increasing the volume of visual data also necessitates more productive means to code the results of interventions with the development of tablet applications being considered for this purpose.
