    ABSTRACTBackgroundObjective dietary biomarkers are urgently needed for a wider range of foods and nutrients. The breath carbon isotope ratio has potential as a noninvasive measure of short-term added sugar intake but has not been evaluated in a controlled-feeding study.ObjectiveThe aim was to evaluate the effect of short-term AS intake on breath CIR in a dose-response, randomized, crossover feeding study.MethodsSix men and 6 women, aged 25 to 60 y, were randomly assigned to a balanced sequence of 5 dietary treatments. Three treatments delivered low , medium , or high amounts of AS over the...
