  1. 1. Formation, pattern and physiological effects of short-chain fatty acids - Impact of various indigestible

    University dissertation from Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Anna Maria Berggren; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Food and drink technology; probiotics; Acarbose; starch; oligosaccharides; dietary fibres; Short-chain fatty acids; fermentability; Livsmedelsteknik; Nutrition; Näringslära;

    Abstract : The short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) formed from colonic fermentation of indigestible carbohydrates have been suggested to exert different physiological effects. In this thesis the fermentability and SCFA produced from various indigestible carbohydrates in the hind-gut were investigated using balance experiments in rats. READ MORE

  2. 2. Content and Distribution of Short-Chain Fatty Acids in the Hindgut of Rats Fed Various Sources of Indigestible Carbohydrates

    University dissertation from [email protected]

    Author : Åsa Henningsson; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rats; red kidney beans; Nutrition; Näringslära; oligosaccharides; non-starch polysaccharides; resistant starch; dietary fibres; indigestible carbohydrates; short-chain fatty acids; fermentation;

    Abstract : There is increasing evidence that short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) formed by colonic fermentation of indigestible carbohydrates have beneficial physiological effects. Butyric acid is the main energy substrate for the colonic mucosa and has been implicated as important in the prevention and treatment of diseases of the colonic mucosa, such as distal ulcerative colitis and cancer.

  4. 4. Regulation of bile acids by prebiotic food components : Studies in rat caecum and in serum of mice and humans

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Tannaz Ghaffarzadegan; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bile acids; Dietary fibre; Fat; Pectin; Guar gum; Barley; Lingonberry; Turmeric; Short-chain fatty acids; Gut microbiota; Caecum; Serum; Rat; Mice; Humans; GC-FID; UHPLC-MS;

    Abstract : Bile acids (BA) are formed from cholesterol in the liver and, apart from being part of fat digestion, they also act as signalling molecules in several health-related physiological processes. BA composition is regulated by gut microbiota as well as dietary fibre (DF) and fat in the diet. READ MORE

  5. 5. Formation of carboxylic acids in rats and humans given indigestible carbohydrates Effects of monomeric composition, solubility, molecular weight and probiotics

    University dissertation from Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Ulf Nilsson; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carboxylic acids; Short-chain fatty acids; Fructo-oligosaccharides; Prebiotics; Probiotics; Näringslära; Nutrition;

    Abstract : There is increasing evidence that fermentation in the large intestine is important for health, and that health-promoting effects are mediated by fermentation products such as butyric and propionic acid. As the formation of carboxylic acids (CAs) from various carbohydrates reaching the colon has been shown to vary, it is of great interest to identify food factors that could be of importance to this process.
