A University of Iowa-led study published in December 2015 describes a hormone that suppresses the consumption of simple sugars. Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is produced in the liver in response to high carbohydrate levels then enters the bloodstream, where it sends a signal to the brain to suppress the preference for sweets.
