Rats were examined for the effect of consumption of silk protein, sericin on the intestinal absorption of Zn, Fe, Mg and Ca. Male Wistar rats were fed on the diet containing either 23% egg albumin or 20% egg albumin plus 3% sericin for 12 d. Consumption of sericin elevated the apparent absorption...
Seaweeds constitute sources of a great diversity in dietary fiber (DF). They contain a high proportion of soluble DF, which may be a barrier to starch digestion, and as a consequence seaweeds may modify glycemic response and may be beneficial in human health. The objective of this research was to...
Twenty-eight adult ovariohysterectomized dogs were fed one of four diets differing in type of dietary fiber to assess the effects of fiber on energy digestibility, partitioning of nitrogen (N) components, and changes in intestinal microflora. Dietary fiber sources were beet pulp (BP), short-chain...
To investigate the contribution of non-heme iron and ferritin in the intestinal mucosa in regulating intestinal iron absorption during the early stage of iron-deficiency, we performed an in vivo study using rats fed an iron-deficient diet. Intestinal iron absorption was measured using the ligated...
