Smith J. Microstructure of the rat's intake of food, sucrose and saccharin in 24-hour tests. Neurosci Biobehav Rev. 2000;24:199-212 pubmed
..Comparisons of drinking during bouts were made with electrophysiological and short-term taste test data. The usefulness of microstructure analysis is discussed. ..
Smith J, Sclafani A. Saccharin as a sugar surrogate revisited. Appetite. 2002;38:155-60 pubmed
..Furthermore, saccharin versus sucrose choice tests indicate that optimal saccharin solutions (0.2-0.4%) are "isopreferred" to only dilute sucrose solutions (2-4%). Thus, at best, saccharin is only a weak surrogate for sugar. ..
