High-fiber Diet on the Body and the Brain

2019-02-07 18:37:15 | BioPortfolio


The central research question aims to understand what drives individuals to make and maintain a vegan / vegetarian dietary decision, to investigate whether there are possible predictors that might influence such a decision and whether personality differences already exist or can only be measured after the change in diet. The investigators will examine the effects of a high-fiber diet on food wanting on a neural and on a behavioral level. The microbiome is suggested to mediate the expected changes in food wanting.

Treating IBD With Inulin

The purpose of this study is to see how the prebiotic inulin changes the gut bacteria (microbiome) of children and young adults with IBD and determine if this dietary intervention can help...

Gut Microbiome Mediated Effects of Inulin Supplementation on Mineral and Bone Metabolism in Hemodialysis Patients

The overall objective of the study is to examine the changes within the gut microbiome after the supplementation of inulin and its effect on markers of mineral metabolism and bone turnover...

Gastrointestinal Toleration of Inulin Products

The intake of inulin products has been linked to multiple health benefits which has lead to inulin fortification in food products. The investigators hypothesis that doses of up to 10 gram...

Effects of a Diet Based on Inulin-rich Vegetables on Gut Health and Nutritional Behaviour in Healthy Humans

Inulin-type fructans (ITF) are fermentable dietary fibres that can confer beneficial health effects through changes in the gut microbiota. However, their effect on gut sensitivity and nutr...

Prebiotic Fructans on the Incidence of Acute Infectious Diseases in Children

Effects of inulin supplementation in laying hens diet on the antioxidant capacity of refrigerated stored eggs.

The effects of inulin supplementation in the diet of laying hens on the antioxidant capacity of refrigerated (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks) eggs were evaluated. Three hundred commercial laying hens were div...

Inulin Can Alleviate Metabolism Disorders in ob/ob Mice by Partially Restoring Leptin-Related Pathways Mediated by Gut Microbiota.

Inulin has been used as a prebiotic to alleviate glucose and lipid metabolism disorders in mice and humans by modulating the gut microbiota. However, the mechanism underlying the alleviation of metabo...

Effects of a diet based on inulin-rich vegetables on gut health and nutritional behavior in healthy humans.

Inulin-type fructans (ITFs) are a type of fermentable dietary fiber that can confer beneficial health effects through changes in the gut microbiota. However, their effect on gut sensitivity and nutrit...

Nanomolar level sensing of glucose in food samples using glucose oxidase confined MWCNT-Inulin-TiO bio-nanocomposite.

Development of an effective sensor for sensing glucose in commercially available "sugar free" food products is important as people are becoming diabetic health conscious. Although multi-walled carbon ...

Inulin-fortification of a processed meat product attenuates formation of nitroso compounds in the gut of healthy rats.

Intake of red and processed meat has been suspected to increase colorectal cancer risk potentially via endogenous formation of carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds or increased lipid and protein oxidation...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.

Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.

Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.

Diet modification and physical exercise to improve the ability to carry out daily tasks and perform physical activities.

A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)
