A residue consisting of tomato peel and seeds is a byproduct of thetomato paste industry. This product had, after drying and grinding,101.4 g water, 175.6 g protein, 95.9 g lipids, 36.4 g ash and590.7 g total carbohydrates per kilogram of residue. The carbohydratesin the residue were mainly dietary fiber (495.3 g) from which 405.4 gwere insoluble fiber. Additionally, the residue had ascorbic acid 0.25 g, P 3 g, Ca 1.7 g, K 13.1 g, Mg 2.4 g, Cu 0.013 g, Fe0.248 g, Mn 0.018 g and Zn 0.174 g per… 

Processing pineapple pulp into dietary fibre supplement

This study demonstrated a potential way of harnessing pineapple pulp, a dietary fibre source, which is lost in fruit processing, and a way of increasing the dietary fibre content of some popular foods to help increase the fibre intake and health of the general population.

Dietary Fibers in Grain Species as Sources of Wholegrain Foods

The paper presents the results of an analysis of 20 lots of cereal products (grains and processed grains products) from different geographic regions. The samples were analyzed for dietary fibers


Tomato paste waste materials are rich in bioactive food components, but have a low economic value. In this study, the potential use of tomato pomace in crackers was studied. Wheat flour was partially

A Promising Food Waste for Food Fortification: Characterization of Dried Tomato Pomace and Its Cold Pressed Oil

In this study, some physicochemical properties of tomato pomace (skins and seeds), which are waste of tomato plants and contain many active food components, were determined. For this purpose, tomato

Effect of Coffee Cascara Dietary Fiber on the Physicochemical, Nutritional and Sensory Properties of a Gluten-Free Bread Formulation

A certificated gluten-free bread with improved nutritional and physicochemical properties and good sensorial profile was obtained.


Tomato waste products (peels and seeds) are rich source of nutrients and bioactive substances, which play a significant role in enhancing the nutritional profile and prolonging shelf life. For this

Dietary Fiber from Underutilized Plant Resources—A Positive Approach for Valorization of Fruit and Vegetable Wastes

Agri-food industries generate enormous amounts of fruit and vegetable processing wastes, which opens up an important research area aimed towards minimizing and managing them efficiently to support

An investigation into the nutritional and physicochemical properties of extruded products containing tomatoes : a thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Food Technology at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand

Extruded expanded products are becoming an important part of the diet in today’s fastpaced life, however due to the presence of high amounts of fully gelatinised starch and low amounts of other



Nutritional evaluation of the protein of dried tomato pomace in the rat

The reason for the decrease in growth and the reduced PER and NPU values recorded for the methionine-supplemented group of rats is not clear and it is discussed in connexion with an imbalance or a slight toxicity caused by the added amino acid.

Gastrointestinal implications in the rat of wheat bran, oat bran and pea fibre

It is confirmed that no simple cause and effect relationship exists between chemical composition, physical properties, and physiological effects of dietary fibre and their effects along the GI tract.

Digestibilities of energy, protein, fat and nonstarch polysaccharides in a low fiber diet and diets containing coarse or fine whole meal rye are comparable in rats and humans.

The results suggest that the rat is a suitable model for humans to predict digestibility of nutrients in mixed diets containing cereal fiber sources.

Chemical composition of pea fibre isolates and their effect on the endogenous amino acid flow at the ileum of the pig

The results suggest that the NDF content of grain legume products is not indicative of their effect on the ileal endogenous AA losses in pigs and that the physiological effects of fibres along the gastrointestinal tract are due to both their chemical and physical properties.

Comparison of the influence of dietary fibre sources with different proportions of soluble and insoluble fibre on Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn and Cu apparent absorption in rats.

Fibre supplementation, except Cr, significantly increased Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu excretion in faeces and decreased their apparent absorption in both trials and significant correlations were found between crude, insoluble and total fibre intake and mineral excretion and apparent absorption.

Influence of Tomato Seed Addition on the Quality of Wheat Flour Breads

Tomato seed, an abundant tomato processing waste product, contains high amounts of crude fat and protein. The protein is especially high in lysine, the limiting amino acid of cereal products. Dried,

Processed oat hulls as potential dietary fiber sources in rats.

Detailed analysis of the processed oat hull fibers indicated that they were greater than 95% insoluble fiber and high in cellulose and xylans, a finding consistent with the failure to detect mixed-linkage beta-glucans in any of the Processed Oat hull products.

Dietary fibers modulate indices of intestinal immune function in rats.

Dietary fiber may have an immunoregulatory effect on the intestinal immune system of rats and under certain experimental conditions, MLN lymphocytes from rats fed pectin had markedly greater interferon-gamma concentration than cells from other groups, while the effect on tumor necrosis factor-alpha concentration was less marked.

Cholesterol-lowering effects and utilization of protein, lipid, fiber and energy in rats fed unprocessed and baked oat bran.

Metabolizable energy of the diets, as well as apparent digestibility of dry matter and protein decreased with oat bran supplementation; on the other hand, lipid digestibility was not significantly changed.

Gastrointestinal effects of food carbohydrate.

Dietary carbohydrate may be divided into monosaccharides and disaccharide (sugars), oligosac charides [degree of polymerization (DP) 3-9], and polysaccharides (DP > 10), which exert a physical effect in the upper gut, serving to moderate carbohydrate and possibly lipid absorption, whereas in the colon they affect bowel habit through fermentation.
