In previous studies on the breakdown of restrained eating it was implicitly assumed that individuals reporting different degrees of pre-experimental restrained eating have identical preferences for the taste and odour of foods. This hypothesis was tested with 23 women classified as either high, medium or low restrained eaters on the basis of their scores on a Dutch 'Restrained Eating Scale'. Individual psychophysical and psychohedonic functions for sweetness and pleasantness of sucrose were determined. From the mean group values it was concluded that there is no relationship between the degree of self-reported restrained eating and perceived sweetness intensity, nor is there a relationship between the degree of self-reported restrained eating and maximally preferred sweetness intensity.
