We explore how foods can be designed to modulate digestion and to promote health by changing the physical properties of digesta. The physical characteristics of digesta are discussed along with their impact on the physiology of digestion with special reference to sites where these characteristics are likely to influence digestive efficiency. Evidence is reviewed regarding the effects of supplementation with viscoactive agents on the flow and mixing of digesta in particular segments of the human… CONTINUE READING
