Determination of dietary fibre fermentation by the human gut microbiota using an in vitro batch modelDownload
Dietary fibre (DF), which is not digested by mammalian enzymes, constitutes a critical substrate for bacterial fermentation in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) production. However, the ability of the human gut microbiome to ferment specific DF structures is...
Diabetes-prone BioBreeding rats do not have a normal immune response when weaned to a diet containing fermentable fibreDownload
Diet is known to modulate the development of diabetes in diabetes-prone BioBreeding (BBdp) rats. The objective of the present study was to determine the effect of fermentable fibre (FF) on immune function in BBdp and diabetes-resistant BioBreeding (BBdr) rats after weaning. Weanling BBdp...
Effects of viscosity and fermentability of dietary fibre on nutrient digestibility and digesta characteristics in ileal-cannulated grower pigsDownload
Relative contributions of two functional properties, viscosity and fermentability of dietary fibre, on apparent ileal digestibility (AID), apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD), digesta passage rate, N retention and SCFA concentration have not been established. Thus, eight ileal-cannulated...
In October 2007, the United Nations declared 2008 as The Year of the Potato, highlighting the importance of this crop as a staple food in human nutrition. While fresh potato consumption is decreasing in many countries, more potatoes are currently processed into value-added products to meet the...
