The effect of addition of sugar-beet fibre to the diet on sterol excretion from the small intestine was studied in nine ileostomy subjects. A constant low-fibre diet was given in two 3 d periods with and without 32 g sugar-beet fibre/d in random order. Care was taken to minimize bacterial alteration of the ileostomy contents. The addition of sugar-beet fibre increased net cholesterol excretion by 52 (SE 9)% (P < 0.01), from 294 (SE 99) to 451 (SE 124) mg/d, and decreased bile acid excretion by… CONTINUE READING
