Fat digestibility in meat products: influence of food structure and gastrointestinal conditions.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 Nov 29:1-10. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

a Instituto de Ingeniería de Alimentos para el Desarrollo , Universitat Politècnica de València , Valencia , Spain.

Digestibility of macronutrients depends on the food matrix structure as well as on gastrointestinal conditions, especially in patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. In this situation, an oral enzyme supplementation that promotes nutrient hydrolysis is needed. In this context, in the present study, a static in vitro digestion model was used to assess the lipid digestibility of different meat products (processed and fresh), different intestinal conditions of pH (6 or 7), bile concentration (1 or 10 mM) and doses of the enzyme supplement (1000-4000 lipase units/g fat).

Effect of mate tea (Ilex paraguariensis) on the expression of the leukocyte NADPH oxidase subunit p47 and on circulating inflammatory cytokines in healthy men: a pilot study.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 Jul 2:1-10. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

a Nutrition Post-Graduate Program, Federal University of Santa Catarina , Florianopolis , Santa Catarina , Brazil.

Increased superoxide production by phagocytic NADPH oxidase has been associated with inflammatory conditions. Growing evidences suggest that dietary polyphenols may modulate the expression of NADPH oxidase subunits. Herein, we examined whether soluble mate tea (SMT) consumption - a polyphenol-rich beverage - affects the expression of the leukocyte NADPH oxidase protein p47 and/or circulating biomarkers of inflammation and antioxidant biomarkers in humans.

In vitro digestion for assessing micronutrient bioavailability: the importance of digestion duration.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 Jun 17:1-7. Epub 2018 Jun 17.

b School of Health Sciences, College of Health , Massey University , Palmerston North , New Zealand.

Static digestion in vitro is a commonly used technique for investigating micronutrient availability which allows the nutrients or foods of interest to be exposed to conditions that simulate those found within the stomach and small intestine. The activity of these digestive enzymes throughout their respective simulated digestion phases has been reported to decline due to the autolytic activity of the proteases and therefore incomplete digestion may result. The degree of protease inactivation under commonly simulated digestion conditions requires further quantification. Read More

In order to investigate the nutritional quality of industrial-scale sprouted versus unsprouted chickpeas and green peas, before and after cooking, the ultrastructure, chemical composition, antioxidant capacity, starch digestibility, mineral content and accessibility were analysed. Sprouting did not deeply affect raw seed structure, although after cooking starch granules appeared more porous and swelled. Chemical composition of raw sprouted seeds was not strongly affected, excepting an increase in protein (both pulses), and in free sugars (in peas; +10% and +80%, respectively, p < . Read More

Probiotics for inflammatory bowel diseases: a promising adjuvant treatment.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 May 28:1-10. Epub 2018 May 28.

b Department of Nutrition, Faculty of Public Health , University of São Paulo , São Paulo , SP , Brazil.

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) encompass ulcerative colitis (UC), Crohn's disease (CD) and indeterminate colitis (IC), characterising chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, associated with changes in the immune system and in the intestinal microbiota. Thus, probiotics may offer an alternative or adjuvant approach to conventional therapy. The present review aims to summarise the mechanisms of action of probiotics in IBD and their therapeutic effects. Read More

b Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology , Centro de Investigación y Asistencia en Tecnología y Diseño del Estado de Jalisco, A.C , Guadalajara , Jalisco , Mexico.

The blueberry is recognised as a source of phenolic compounds that have beneficial effects on human health; however, they possess low bioavailability and can be degraded by gastrointestinal conditions. Encapsulation has been widely used to mitigate these disadvantages; Gum Arabic (GA) and Corn Syrup Solids (CSS) are common carriers used in this technique. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Blueberry Extract (BE), carriers and their mixtures on the kinetic growth and maximal growth rate of probiotics and pathogenic bacteria. Read More

Late effect of the food consumption on colorectal cancer rate.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 May 17:1-9. Epub 2018 May 17.

a Nutritional Science Program, Public Health Department , Morgan State University , Baltimore , MD , USA.

Studies have suggested that higher meat intake may increase colorectal cancer (CRC) risk while higher vegetable intake may reduce this risk. There is a substantial lag between the time of exposure to a risk factor (or protective factor) and incidence of cancer. For CRC, in particular, the time from formation of adenoma to occurrence of CRC takes from 10 to 15 years, or even more. Read More

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 May 11:1-12. Epub 2018 May 11.

a Department of Food Science , University of Guelph , Guelph , ON , Canada.

The typical intervention for iron-deficiency anaemia is through oral supplementation with iron salts, which have unpleasant side effects. Therefore, there is a need for the development of supplements which will be absorbed more effectively and may have fewer side effects. This study investigated the effects of partially hydrolysed pork proteins on the bioavailability of non-haem iron. Read More
