Polydextrose: Physiological Function, and Effects on Health
TLDR
A survey of the literature on the effect of supplementation with PDX in health, and to list the benefits for maintaining health and/or reducing the development of diseases. Expand
Dietary galactooligosaccharides increase calcium absorption in normal and gastrectomized rats.
TLDR
The ingestion of galactooligosaccharides prevents osteopenia in partially gastrectomized rats and indicates that calcium excretion in feces was significantly lower than the group without prebiotics. Expand
Intake of Polydextrose Alters Hematology and the Profile of Short Chain Fatty Acids in Partially Gastrectomized Rats
TLDR
Considering that SCFAs play a central role in the increasing nutrients uptake, this mechanism may be involved in altering the hematology profile observed in these animals but not enough to reverse iron deficiency anemia in post-gastrectomy rats. Expand
Dietary fibres from guavira pomace, a co-product from fruit pulp industry: Characterization and cellular antioxidant activity.
TLDR
The pre-treatment of cells with guavira DF for 48 h remarkably induced a cytoprotection against pro-oxidant conditions, and may be a valuable functional compound recovered from an unexploited agroindutrial waste. Expand
Effects of the partial gastrectomy associated to anterior truncal vagotomy in the metabolism of the iron in rats.
TLDR
Partial gastrectomy associated to anterior truncal vagotomy showed to be a good experimental model the study of iron metabolism, decreasing the haematocrit, theHaemoglobin and the iron absorption, consequently causing anemia. Expand
Human Health Risk Assessment through Roasted Meats Consumption
TLDR
EDI and HQ values revealed a minimal exposure of the adult population to those metals through roasted-meats consumption, however, EDI values of As in some roasted meats are above standard limits. Expand
Two polyphenol-rich Brazilian fruit extracts protect from diet-induced obesity and hepatic steatosis in mice.
TLDR
TPE reduced visceral obesity and improved glucose metabolism as revealed by an improvement of the insulin tolerance test, a reduction in the insulin fasting level, and a decreased glucose-induced hyperinsulinemia during an oral glucose tolerance test. Expand
Buriti pulp oil did not improve high-fat diet-induced metabolic disorders in c57bl/6 mice.
TLDR
C57BL/6 mice fed with a high-fat diet and supplemented with BPO presented a worsening in metabolic risk factors associated with MetS, as the abdominal circumference and retroperitoneal fat, serum levels of total cholesterol, uric acid, alanine transaminase, glucose and triglycerides, and renal fat were worsened. Expand
Campomanesia sp. flour attenuates non-alcoholic fatty liver disease on rats fed with a hypercaloric diet.
TLDR
GF consumption attenuated NAFLD caused by a hypercaloric diet, and this effect may be related to the fibre content and bioactive compounds in GF. Expand
PINEAPPLE JAM PHYSICOCHEMICAL AND SENSORY EVALUATION WITH ADDED PINEAPPLE PEEL
The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of pineapple peel (PP) addition on pineapple jam physicochemical and sensory characteristics. Five pineapple jam formulations were prepared:Expand
