PLoS ONE: Intense Sweetness Surpasses Cocaine Reward: « Here we report that when rats were allowed to choose mutually-exclusively between water sweetened with saccharin – an intense calorie-free sweetener – and intravenous cocaine – a highly addictive and harmful substance – the large majority of animals (94%) preferred the sweet taste of saccharin. The preference for saccharin was not attributable to its unnatural ability to induce sweetness without calories because the same preference was also observed with sucrose, a natural sugar. Finally, the preference for saccharin was not surmountable by increasing doses of cocaine and was observed despite either cocaine intoxication, sensitization or intake escalation – the latter being a hallmark of drug addiction. »

Ce qui expliquerait la puissance du kadaïf ! Faudra bien que je le réussisse avec un édulcorant supportable pour les diabétiques.
