Modulation of glucagon-like peptide 1 and energy metabolism by inulin and oligofructose: experimental data.

Abstract

Inulin-type fructans have been tested for their capacity to modulate lipid and glucose metabolism in several animal models. Oligofructose (OFS) decreases food intake, fat mass development, and hepatic steatosis in normal and in obese rats; moreover, it exerts an antidiabetic effect in streptozotocin-treated rats and high-fat-fed mice. In most cases, the… (More)
