The intake of 17 - 30 g/d lupin kernel fibre for four weeks led to an increase of 21% in faecal output and resulted in a 17% decline in transit time. In the current study, all tested fibre interventions led to an enhanced excretion of total SCFA as well as the main SCFA acetate, propionate, and n Cited by: In rats fed this semisynthetic diet, the plasma cholesterol was lowered and the faecal steroid output increased when a relatively indigestible soybran supplement was given. In man, the effect of increasing dietary fibre from 17 to 45g/day in six subjects was to increase mean daily bile acid output from to mg/day (P Cited by: 5. In contrast, cholestyramine significantly increased the faecal excretion of bile acids only. Quantitatively, the greatest faecal output of total sterols was found in rats fed both sorbents, however, the increase was moderate and statistically non-significant in comparison with output of sterols in rats fed amidated pectin by: Faecal samples were measured for cholesterol output markers to determine if the fractionated GS-WK oil and/or wax affected cholesterol absorption. Total sterol (neutral + bile salts) output was significantly higher for all the athero fed animals compared. The excreted sterols were primarily neutral sterols, i.e., cholesterol and its.
The mean daily faecal output per swan was 52 g dry weight. The nitrogen content of the faeces averaged % of dry weight, and was dominated by soluble organic nitrogen (59% of total N). in faecal bile acid excretion but there was a modest decrease in the serum cholesterol. Such changes in sterol metabolism were not found for the potato fibre of any. Introduction. The health effects of food hydrocolloids are dependent on how they are incorporated into foods and in the diet. There are many hydrocolloid carbohydrates naturally present in plant foods as part of the cell wall, such as hemicelluloses and pectin, or with other more specific roles within the plant such as storage polysaccharides like guar gum, exudates like gum acacia, and. Investigation of the covariate effect of the food intake parameters failed to show any effect on the bowel habit parameters except that water consumed influenced the % water in stool (p=) and dry weight (p=) but had no significant effect on wet weight (p=).However, adjustment for water consumed made no qualitative difference to the treatment effect.
Abstract. The in vitro water-holding properties of 17 dietary fibre preparations, mainly food materials, bulk laxatives, and gel-forming polysaccharides, have been measured. Water uptake was measured by a centrifugation technique and also by a new method using sacs of dialysis tubing containing the material, immersed in simulated gut contents. The effects of amidated carboxymethylcellulose, amidated pectin, and psyllium on serum and hepatic cholesterol, hepatic fat, and fecal output of sterols were examined in female rats. One avocado packs grams of dietary fiber. However, one serving — or one-third of the fruit — provides about grams, of which are soluble (9, 10).Rich in both soluble and insoluble. After 16 weeks total faecal bile acid output was greater with the soluble (±56 mg/day) compared with the insoluble (±35; P=) fibre diet but no differences were seen in faecal neutral sterol elimination. The treatment difference in faecal lithocholic acid output related to the difference in serum PSA (r=; P=).
