The Standard American Diet includes high intakes of processed foods and saturated fat. The Standard American Diet has been implicated in contributing to the health challenges experienced in the United States such as obesity and chronic pain. The goal of this experiment is to reduce the fat content of cream sauce and receive similar scores among a group of panelists/taste testers in flavor, texture, appearance, and overall likeability to a full fat sauce. The results showed that although the scores of the low-fat recipes were not as high as the full fat recipe, a close alternative was found while reducing the fat content significantly.
