We explored the relationship between three food attributes and portion size estimation. Twenty-seven men rated liking, familiarity and expected satiation (ES) of a chocolate bar, muffin, banana, cola, cornflakes, potato chips (crisps), hot chocolate drink and ice-cream, before estimating portion size when hungry and full. Portion estimates correlated with liking ratings in three foods (r = -0.53 to 0.28); with familiarity in two foods (r = -0.30, full only); and with ES in four foods (r <= 0.45). Across foods lower ES ratings tended to correlate with higher portion size estimates. Portion size estimation is influenced by food liking, familiarity and expected satiation. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
