Comparison of Long-term Antihyperglycemic and Hypolipidemic Effects Between Coccinia cordifolia (Linn.) And Catharanthus roseus (Linn.) In Alloxan-induced Diabetic Rats
C. cordifolia was found to be better than C. roseus in lowering blood glucose and serum triglycerides but has lower activity for lowering serum cholesterol on lo ng-term treatment basis in A IDRs. Expand
Effect of blanching and drying temperatures on the physicochemical characteristics, dietary fiber composition and antioxidant-related parameters of dried persimmons peel powder
Dried blanched peels dried at 50°C had the highest dietary fiber compositions, swelling capacity and antioxidant activity compared with those at high drying temperatures (60°C and 70°C) and therefore it is suggested to obtain better quality dietary fiber powder from persimmon peel. Expand
