The present study was designed to investigate how repeated injections of oxytocin influence plasma levels of vagally controlled hormones such as gastrin, cholecystokinin (CCK), insulin and somatostatin, as well as of endogenous oxytocin and glucose. Since oxytocin may enhance the activity of centrally located alpha2-adrenoreceptors, a second aim of this(More)
Lambs develop a preferential relationship with their mothers within 24 h after birth. In a first experiment, we attempted to determine whether neonatal sucking was a potent reinforcer in the establishment of this preference by temporarily covering the udders of ewes after parturition. Lambs were assigned to one of three treatments: they had free access to(More)
Cholecystokinin (CCK) is a regulatory peptide released into the circulation after the ingestion of food. Our knowledge concerning the factors affecting its pattern of secretion in the mammalian neonate is scanty. Therefore, in this work we studied plasma concentrations of CCK in 3-day-old lambs after a sucking bout that followed either a short (2 h) or a(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies report that dietary fibre from different sources promotes the feeling of satiety and suppresses hunger. However, results for cereal fibre from rye are essentially lacking. The aim of the present study was to investigate subjective appetite during 8 h after intake of iso-caloric rye bread breakfasts varying in rye dietary fibre(More)
BACKGROUND The structure of whole grain cereals is maintained to varying degrees during processing and preparation of foods. Food structure can influence metabolism, including perceived hunger and satiety. A diet that enhances satiety per calorie may help to prevent excessive calorie intake. The objective of this work was to compare subjective appetite(More)

Whole grain rye products have previously been shown to increase feelings of satiety for up to 8h after intake under standardized conditions. This study was set out to investigate the sustainability of the satiating effect after regular consumption of breakfast meals with whole grain rye porridge or refined wheat bread. The study was randomized, cross-over(More)
Understanding carbon partitioning in cereal seeds is of critical importance to develop cereal crops with enhanced starch yields for food security and for producing specified end-products high in amylose, β-glucan, or fructan, such as functional foods or oils for biofuel applications. Waxy mutants of cereals have a high content of amylopectin and have been(More)
Currently in many Western countries there are concerns that clustering of ethnic minorities in certain parts of cities will negatively affect integration processes. Scholarly theory and evidence on this point is mixed, however. We use Swedish data and conduct a panel analysis quantifying the degree to which the ethnic composition of the neighbourhood(More)
