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 type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This study will show if consuming resistant starch can help improve insulin sensitivity in overweight and obese people.

The purpose of this intervention study is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of soy-fiber-maize versus soy-maize complementary foods on bowel movement frequency, transit time, gro...
Aim of the present study is to verify in a double-blind placebo controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) test that highly purified barley starch ingredient do not cause allergic reaction in subj...
The purpose of this randomized control trial is to test the impact of provitamin A carotenoid biofortified maize meal consumption on maternal and infant vitamin A status.
The objective of this study is to assess whether supplementation with resistant starch from the rice-flour coffee developed by EMBRAPA, as well as from an already industrialized product (H...
The study hypothesis is that high ß-C yellow maize can provide vitamin A efficiently. - list item one ß-C in yellow maize The study will use stable isotope labeled high ß-C yellow ma...
The accumulation and morphology of starch in the pericarp, embryo and endosperm of normal and waxy maize were investigated using whole sections of complete caryopses. Pericarp starch took the form of ...
The accumulation of starch in cereal endosperm is a key process that determines crop yield and quality. Research has reported that sucrose and abscisic acid (ABA) synergistically regulate the synthesi...
The spatiotemporal deposition of lysophosphatidylcholine within starch granules of maize endosperm and its relationships to the expression of genes involved in endoplasmic reticulum-amyloplast lipid trafficking and galactolipid synthesis.
The presence of lipids within starch granules is specific to cereal endosperm starches. These starch lipids are composed of lysophospholipids, especially lysophosphatidylcholine (LysoPC) and free fatt...
An efficient method was developed to prepare oxidized potato starch under the pasting point by Electro-Fenton system, in which a complex of sodium citrate and Fe (SC-Fe) was used as catalyst, and HO w...
Due to poor properties of biodegradable native starch (NS) film; in this work, dual-modified starch films i.e. crosslinked-oxidized starch (C-OS) and oxidized-crosslinked starch (O-CS) films were prep...
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Electrophoresis in which a starch gel (a mixture of amylose and amylopectin) is used as the diffusion medium.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
