Development of nutrient-rich Teff bread and its effects on iron status and exercise performance in female runners

  title={Development of nutrient-rich Teff bread and its effects on iron status and exercise performance in female runners},
  author={Ieva Alaunyte},
Public awareness of the health benefits associated with less-utilised yet nutritious grains has led to a growing demand for healthier cereal products. This has resulted in an interest in improving the nutritional properties of refined white wheat bread, which is one of the main staple foods for most Western nations. Teff is a small-grained cereal that is rich in nutrients and particularly abundant in iron. Therefore, Teff offers the potential to provide a healthier alternative bread product…

ABSTRACT This study was aimed to investigate volatile compounds of white and brown teff grain samples using the hydro-distillation and its extract in dichloromethane and n-hexane by gas


Can Dietary Treatment of Non-Anemic Iron Deficiency Improve Iron Status?
This study is the first, to the authors' knowledge, to demonstrate that an intensive dietary program has the potential to improve the iron status of women with iron deficiency.
Dietary iron deficiency and sports anaemia
The habitual consumption of Fe-poor diets is a factor in the aetiology of athletes' Fe deficiency, and Fe-deficient male runners, but not female runners, consumed significantly less haem-Fe than their comparative groups.

Iron absorption may be as low as 2-3% from porridge based on whole-grain cereals and legumes (phytic acid approximately 1 g/100 g) even in iron-deficient subjects, so zinc absorption should be satisfactory.
Iron status in exercising women: the effect of oral iron therapy vs increased consumption of muscle foods.
Iron status in the 50 FE + EX and M + EX groups improved after week 4 as indicated by an increase in serum ferritin, serum iron, and hemoglobin concentrations, and a decline in total iron-binding capacity, which was offset to varying degrees by ingesting iron or meat supplements.
Relationship among reduced level of stored iron and dietary iron in trained women.
The findings in the present study are: the significant relation exists between serum ferritin level and quantity of haeme-iron intake (but not with total iron intake), and 10% of female athletes have iron deficiency.

Iron and health
For the general population, SACN is recommending a public health approach to achieving adequate iron status based on a healthy balanced diet that includes a variety of foods containing iron.
Effects of iron intake through food or supplement on iron status and performance of healthy adolescent swimmers during a training season.
Iron status and performance of healthy adolescent swimmers were affected by training irrespective of iron intake ranging from one to over five times the RDA over a period of six months.
