  1. 1. Physicochemical properties of root fiber suspensions. A comparison between parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) and yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius)

    Författare :Alejandra Castro; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; physicochemical properties; parsnip; yacon; plant suspensions; particle size distribution; rheology; fructans; dietary fiber;

    Sammanfattning : The physicochemical properties of two root suspensions, parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) and yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius), were studied and compared at different concentrations and after being subjected to processes such as homogenization and heating. The study and the evaluation of the physicochemical properties of these plant materials in the form of pastes might help to increase the interest in these two roots, and possibly encourage their further industrial use.

  2. 2. High fiber rye foods decrease body weight and body fat and affect metabolic risk markers

    Författare :Kia Noehr Iversen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rye; whole grain; human nutrition; dietary fiber; gut microbiota; randomized controlled trial; wheat; weight loss; appetite; cereals; metabolic risk factors;

    Sammanfattning : Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for development of non-communicable diseases, such as type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and increase the risk of early mortality. Diet and food consumption are among the most important factors in preventing and reversing overweight, obesity and their comorbidities. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Understanding normal-tissue late effects in the intestines after pelvic radiotherapy

    Författare :Dilip Malipatlolla; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pelvic radiotherapy; Intestinal inflammation; dietary fiber;

    Sammanfattning : Radiotherapy cures patients from deadly cancer, alone or in combination with other treatments. The photons must pass through normal tissue to converge on the tumor, and it is unavoidable that radiotherapy causes acute as well as late adverse effects. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Food intake, fibrinolysis and risk factors for cardiovascular disease : studies with special focus on plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1)

    Författare :Birgitta Sundell-Rånby; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Body build; diet; fiber; fibrinolysis; glucose; insulin; lipids; obesity; plasminogen activator inhibitor;

    Sammanfattning : Elevated plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) activity levels, hyperlipemia, hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance and obesity, in particular central obesity, are all related to increased risk for the development of cardiovascular disease.Some risk factors are known to be and shown to be influenced by dietary habits.

  5. 5. Iron absorption and iron status related to diet : an experimental and epidemiological study

    Författare :Per Tidehag; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; iron status; iron absorption; bioavailability; dietary fiber; phytate; calcium; radioiron; diet;

    Sammanfattning : The absorption of iron from the diet is a major determinant of the iron status of an individual. Accurate measures of iron absorption are thus essential in the determination of the effects of diet composition on iron absorption and status. LÄS MER
