  1. 1. Barley malt products for improved intestinal health

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Cristina Teixeira; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Barley; malt; steeping; Beta-glucan; beta-glucan molecular weight; Arabinoxylan; short-chain fatty acids; Microbiota; β-glucan; arabinoxylan; β-glucan molecular weight; microbiota;

    Abstract : Barley is a good source of dietary fibre, particularly β-glucan and arabinoxylan, to increase formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Butyric and propionic acid are involved in the preservation of colonic barrier function, thus decreasing the risk of inflammation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Isolation, Characterization and Material Properties of Arabinoxylan from Barley

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Anders Höije; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; chemical structure; moisture content; film formation; Arabinoxylan; isolation; mechanical properties; oxygen permeability;

    Abstract : The growing amount of household waste and the limited supply of fossil fuel on earth make it important to find renewable resources for the production of biodegradable polymers for a variety of applications, particularly as packaging and other disposable products. Hemicelluloses are important components in all plants and the second most abundant plant biopolymers on earth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bioprocessing, Structure and Material Properties of Arabinoxylans

    University dissertation from Chemistry Division of Biotechnology

    Author : Anders Höije; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; moisture content; biorefinery; Arabinoxylan; mechanical properties; chemical structure; isolation; film formation; oxygen permeability; enzymatic treatment;

    Abstract : This work has focused on using agriculture residues as raw material for new polymeric materials. Arabinoxylans have been isolated from barley husks and endosperm fiber using alkali extraction, and the chemical composition and detailed structure have been determined. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prebiotic Oligosaccharides from Xylan: Heat Pretreatment, Xylanase Hydrolysis, Utilization by Potential Probiotics and Evaluation in a Mouse Study

    University dissertation from Chemistry Division of Biotechnology

    Author : Peter Falck; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; arabinoxylan; xylooligosaccharides; arabinoxylooligosaccharides; Bifidobacterium; Lactobacillus;

    Abstract : Modulation of the gut microbiota with prebiotic oligosaccharides from partially hydrolyzed xylans can be part of the solution for reducing the occurrence of many health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that selectively stimulate health beneficial bacteria in the colon, restoring homeostasis to the gut environment. READ MORE
