Enrichment of bread with α-CD resulted in positive effects on postprandial glycaemia and induced satiety. The incorporation of encapsulated hydroxytyrosol offered similar overall acceptability due to the bitter taste-masking effect provided by α-CD and a slightly additional positive effect in postprandial glycaemia and satiety. The development of foods with favorable metabolic effects is of great importance for the prevention of chronic diseases. The study was prospectively registered in clinicaltrials.gov (NCT04725955, date: 27th January 2021).
