- BiologyInternational journal of molecular sciences
- 31 March 2010
To confirm the implications of polyphenol consumption for prevention of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and eventually type 2 diabetes, human trials with well-defined diets, controlled study designs and clinically relevant end-points together with holistic approaches e.g., systems biology profiling technologies are needed.

Postprandial insulin responses to grain products are determined by the form of food and botanical structure rather than by the amount of fiber or the type of cereal in the food.
Two major xylanases of Trichoderma reesei
Sourdough and cereal fermentation in a nutritional perspective.
Viscosity of oat bran-enriched beverages influences gastrointestinal hormonal responses in healthy humans.
Viscous fibers, including beta-glucan in oat bran, favorably affect satiety as well as postprandial carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. However, effects of fiber viscosity on modulation of…
In vitro fermentation of cereal dietary fibre carbohydrates by probiotic and intestinal bacteria
Arabinoxylan was not fermented by lactobacilli, enterococci, E coli, C perfringens or C difficile and has potential to be an applicable carbohydrate to complement probiotic Bif longum strains in synbiotic combinations.
Dietary fiber type reflects physiological functionality: comparison of grain fiber, inulin, and polydextrose.
The reported effects on postprandial blood glucose and fasting cholesterol levels have been modest, but grain fibers also show variable effects, and new biomarkers are needed to link the physiological functions of specific fibers with long-term health benefits.

Comparisons of the bread wheat lines show that it is possible to identify lines in which high levels of phytochemicals and dietary fiber components are combined with good yield and processing quality, and means that commercially competitive lines with high level of bioactive components are a realistic goal for plant breeders.
