Types of Starch and Their Effect on Blood Glucose, Appetite and Food Intake
The investigators hypothesize that different types of starch vary in their effects on appetite, blood sugar and food intake. In this study, subjects consumed five soups containing 50 g of whole grain, high amylose corn, regular corn or maltodextrin starches or no added starch at one week intervals. The investigators measured food intake at 30 minutes, appetite and blood sugar.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
Specific practices for the prevention of disease or mental disorders in susceptible individuals or populations. These include HEALTH PROMOTION, including mental health; protective procedures, such as COMMUNICABLE DISEASE CONTROL; and monitoring and regulation of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS. Primary prevention is to be distinguished from SECONDARY PREVENTION and TERTIARY PREVENTION.
The prevention of recurrences or exacerbations of a disease that already has been diagnosed. This also includes prevention of complications or after-effects of a drug or surgical procedure.
Electrophoresis, Starch Gel
Electrophoresis in which a starch gel (a mixture of amylose and amylopectin) is used as the diffusion medium.
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
This study will test the effects of resistant starch type 4 on blood sugar and hunger in adults with Type 2 diabetes.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of a dietary fiber, resistant starch, on insulin sensitivity. Low insulin sensitivity is a risk factor for some diseases including ty...
This study tested the effects of resistant starch type 4 on blood sugar and hunger in young adults with Type 2 diabetes.
This study is to determine whether different types of resistant starch have different effects on blood glucose in healthy adults.
The aim of the study is to explore the contribution of pollen starch granules to the induced symptoms and airway inflammation in patients with allergic rhinitis and mild asthma in a contro...
Several previous studies have shown that the intake of soup negatively correlates with the body mass index (BMI), serum cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels, and blood pressure, suggesting that soup...
Sensory properties of food play an important role in satiation. Studies on the effect of taste intensity on satiation show conflicting results. This may be due to the notion that in these studies tast...
AIM: To evaluate the effect of the daily intake of a fruit & vegetable soup with high in vitro bioaccessibility of carotenoids on β-carotene and lycopene serum concentrations. METHODS: Fourteen healt...
Previous studies have demonstrated the satiating properties of soups compared with solids; however, the mechanisms controlling soup-induced satiety are unknown. This study aimed to understand the phys...
Using near-infrared spectroscopy and thermogravimetry coupled with differential scanning calorimetry (TG-DSC), we investigated the characteristics of water in starch and the effects of the inner struc...
