Study to Determine the Digestive and Physiological Effects of an Extract From Bran in Healthy Men and Women

2014-08-27 03:15:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective of this trial is to determine whether two doses of an extract from bran demonstrate a prebiotic effect on colonic bacteria (by modulating selected fecal microbial populations, particularly bifidobacteria). The secondary objective is to measure the potential beneficial effects of consuming an extract from bran on the following physiological parameters: laxation, fecal pH, fecal moisture and stool consistency, blood glucose and insulin concentrations, plasma lipid profiles and serum free fatty acids, colonic bacterial short chain fatty acid production, ammonia metabolism and protein degradation, and biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation.

Quality of meat from sheep fed diets containing spineless cactus (Nopalea cochenillifera Salm Dyck).

It was aimed to evaluate the effects of replacement of wheat bran in lambs' diets with spineless cactus (0, 33, 66, and 100%) in a lamb's diet on the physicochemical parameters, fatty acids and sensor...

Introducing insoluble wheat bran as a gut microbiota niche in an in vitro dynamic gut model stimulates propionate and butyrate production and induces colon region specific shifts in the luminal and mucosal microbial community.

The spatial organisation of gut microorganisms is important with respect to their functional role in the gut ecosystem. Regional differences in the longitudinal and lateral direction are, however, not...

Antifungal effect of phenolic extract of fermented rice bran with Rhizopus oryzae and its potential use in loaf bread shelf life extension.

In this study the antifungal potential of a phenolic extract obtained from rice bran fermented with Rhizopus oryzae CECT 7560 and its application in the elaboration of bread was assessed.

Quantitative multiplexed profiling of Penicillium funiculosum secretome grown on polymeric cellulase inducers and glucose.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

OIL extracted from the hard outer brown layer of rice bran after the husk has been removed.

Allergic reaction to wheat that is triggered by the immune system.

A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.

A plant genus of the family POACEAE that is the source of wheat grain. A hybrid with rye (SECALE CEREALE) is called TRITICALE. The seed is ground into FLOUR and used to make BREAD, and is the source of WHEAT GERM AGGLUTININS.

Lectins purified from the germinating seeds of common wheat (Triticum vulgare); these bind to certain carbohydrate moieties on cell surface glycoproteins and are used to identify certain cell populations and inhibit or promote some immunological or physiological activities. There are at least two isoforms of this lectin.
