  1. 1. Hydrothermal Processing of Cereals Optimal Conditions for Phytete Degradation and Myo-Inositol Formation. Effect on Phytase Activity and Mineral Absorption

    Author : Eva-Lotta Bergman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : rye; rice; barley; wheat; myo-inositol; calcium absorption; phytase; hydrothermal processing; zinc absorption; phytate;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to optimise a hydrothermal process to degrade phytate (myo-inositol hexaphosphate), increase the level of free myo-inositol and preserve phytase activity in cereals with the purpose to achieve products with improved mineral bioavailability. Phytate is known to impair mineral absorption and myo-inositol is considered to be a semi-essential nutrient. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bioactive Carbohydrates in Vining Peas (Pisum sativum) - Variation in alpha-galactoside content and the colonic fermentation of sugar alcohols

    Author : Jimmy Ekvall; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha-galactosides; raffinose family oligosaccharides; Näringslära; Nutrition; short-chain fatty acids; colonic fermentation; myo-inositol; sorbitol; xylitol; sugar alcohols; blanching; maturity; cultivar; Pisum sativum;

    Abstract : The composition of the colonic microflora is essential for the health of the human host. To be able to survive, the microflora is dependent of a continuous supply of substrate. In this respect dietary fibre and other indigestible carbohydrates, of which the consumption in affluent societies is generally low, are of great importance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inhibition of Calcium and Zinc Absorption by Phytate in Man Methodological Studies and Hydrothermal Processing of Cereals to Improve Absorption

    Author : Kerstin Fredlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : barley; wheat; rye; 65Zn; oats; zinc absorption; whole grains; InsP6; hydrothermal processing; calcium absorption; rice; radionuclide technique; 47Ca; extrinsic labelling; phytate; hydrothermal treatment; myo-inositol; calcium retention; whole-body counting;

    Abstract : A mathematical model based on measurements in a whole-body counter described the retention of calcium in the human body. It was shown that the relative retention of intravenous and orally administered 47Ca in all subjects (n = 10 - 11) were well described by fitting a simple function of time with two free parameters to a few whole-body measurements after day 6, when the unabsorbed calcium had been excreted.

  5. 5. Phytases in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Exploring genes and proteins for the improvement of strains

    Author : Jenny Veide; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; phytase; yeast; acid phosphatase; in vitro digestion; PHO; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; phytate; myo-inositol hexaphosphate;

    Abstract : Degradation of myo-inositol hexaphosphate (InsP6, phytate) in food or feed by InsP6-degrading enzymes (phytases) is known to increase the availability of minerals and phosphate, which leads to a higher nutritional value. The aim of this work was to explore the extracellular degradation of InsP6 by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. READ MORE
