Food energy values of dietary fibre components and decreased deposition of body fat.

Abstract

The effects of guar gum (GG) and solka floc cellulose (SF) on food intake, stomach emptying and body fat deposition in rats were assessed together with their food energy values. Voluntary food intake in meal-fed rats (ca 100 g, male Wistar kept at 21C) was depressed initially by 40 per cent on adding 10 g GG to 100 g fibre free (FF) semisynthetic diet. This… (More)
