Human urinary metabolic profiling showed to be very successful to elucidate biomarkers linked to geographic origin and specific food consumption patterns (Holmes and Loo et al.: Human metabolic phenotype diversity and its association with diet and blood pressure. Nature 2008:1-6). It was possible to identify urinary metabolites directly linked to animal vs. vegetable protein intake. This is very valuable for future population studies, where diet is an important lifestyle factor but food questionnaires are time-consuming and expensive. Moreover, miss-reporting is a very common problem.
Our hypothesis is to find the same biochemical marker for orange juice as we already found in a preceding nutritional studies where participants recorded orange consumption.
To elucidate the citrus fruit biomarker it needs to be ensured that all volunteers do not consume citrus fruits and foods potentially containing similar ingredients. Therefore it is necessary to ask volunteers to refrain from these foods by giving them dietary restrictions. Extensive literature research showed that some foods (such as grain legumes and brie cheese) may contain the same compound, but in much smaller amounts.
Days 1-3 will be on open diet but with dietary restrictions (no alcohol, cheese, fruits, ethnic foods such as Chinese and Indian food, grain legumes such as beans, lentils, peas and peanuts, and all kinds of sprouts (such as cress or alfalfa)). On day 2 a glass of orange juice (200ml) will be consumed in addition to the open diet. Urine collection will continue and stop on day 4 at 10 am.
During the study to minimise variation in biomarker excretion due to other beverages the participants beverage intake will be restricted to water and coffee.
All urine samples will then be analysed using high resolution NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Mathematical data analyses as well as the visual examinations of the NMR spectra will also be carried out to validate the presence of citrus fruit biomarkers.

Retrograde flow of gastric juice (GASTRIC ACID) and/or duodenal contents (BILE ACIDS; PANCREATIC JUICE) into the distal ESOPHAGUS, commonly due to incompetence of the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.
