  1. 1. Cholesterol-lowering properties of oats: Effects of processing and the role of oat components

    Author : Tina Immerstrand; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []

    Abstract : The cholesterol-lowering effect of oats has been studied for almost fifty years. The effect has hitherto essentially been associated with its content of β-glucans, the primary soluble dietary fibre in oats. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterisation of Dietary Fibre Properties to Optimise the Effects on Human Metabolism and the Transcriptome

    Author : Matilda Ulmius; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; field-flow fractionation; gastrointestinal method; aggregation; solubilisation; pectin; β-glucan; sugar beet fibre; Oats; rye; postprandial responses; microarray gene expression;

    Abstract : It is well established that dietary fibre, especially soluble dietary fibre, has beneficial effects and can prevent diseases associated with the modern lifestyle. This has been explained by the viscous effects of soluble fibre, which can reduce or delay the absorption of carbohydrates and fat in the small intestine, resulting in lower blood concentrations of glucose, insulin and cholesterol.

  3. 3. On the Aggregation of Cereal β-Glucan and its Association with other Biomolecules : A Study using Asymmetric Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (AF4)

    Author : Claudia Zielke; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : ß-glucan; polysaccharides; dietary fiber; field flow fractionation; Asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation AF4 ; Multiangle light scattering MALS ;

    Abstract : During recent years, numerous studies have shown the ability of dietary fiber toprotect the colon from disease and to improve intestinal health. Beneficial healtheffects, such as the lowering of blood cholesterol levels and a reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease, are often directly related to cereal β-glucan, one of the major components of dietary fiber found in oat and barley.

  4. 4. Glycaemic Response in Relation to Gastric Emptying and Satiety in Health and Disease

    Author : Joanna Hlebowicz; Kardiovaskulär forskning - immunitet och ateroskleros; []
    Keywords : Diabetes; Cinnamon; Satiety; Healthy subjects; Gastroparesis; Blood Glucose; Ultrasound; Gastric emptying; Whole-kernel; Dietary fibre; Beta-glucan; Wheat; Oat;

    Abstract : Dietary fibre and whole grains are recommended to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. Low glycaemic index foods that are rich in fibre are recommended to control blood glucose levels. Gastric emptying, together with other factors, regulate the postprandial blood glucose response.

  5. 5. Cereal Dietary Fibre - Physicochemical Properties and Suitability for Addition to Low-Fat Meat Products

    Author : Karin Petersson; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dietary fibre; cereals; oat bran; rye bran; wheat bran; barley fibre; hydrolytic enzymes; physicochemical properties; low-fat sausages; low-fat meatballs; sensory perception; texture;

    Abstract : It is well known that dietary fibre is good for the health. Cereals, and in particular the outer parts of the cereal kernels, are rich in dietary fibre. Rye bran, wheat bran, oat bran and barley fibre have been investigated regarding their suitability as additives in low-fat meat products. READ MORE
