The effects of acute and chronic dietary fiber (cellulose and pectin) supplementation on both intestinal glucose absorption and oral glucose tolerance were studied in rats. The effect of intraluminal fiber on intestinal glucose absorption was evaluated in perfused jejunal loops as was the effect of a single cellulose or pectin-supplemented meal on serum glucose responses to a carbohydrate load. Neither pectin nor cellulose impaired jejunal glucose absorption, but pectin did decrease serum… CONTINUE READING
