Changes in the structure and digestion fractions of wheat starch cooked with and without fiber

Ataç, Leyla Elif
Starch digestibility affects blood glucose levels. Dietary fibers had been shown to slow down starch digestibility. Therefore, the objective was to understand the effect of fiber type on in vitro digestion of wheat starch. Wheat starch with and without fiber was heated at 90°C for 10 minutes at three different water concentrations (50%, 65%, and 80%). The starch to fiber ratio was 1:1 (dry basis) for the fiber added samples. In vitro digestion analyses were conducted for wheat starch with or without psyllium and cellulose fibers, cooked at different water concentrations. Changes in the structures were determined with Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), XRay Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) analysis. The results showed that fiber addition and decreasing water concentration during cooking reduced the digestibility of starch. Digested starch fractions were affected by gelatinization, fiber type, and dilution due to the added fiber. The type of fiber or the formed matrix affected both the gelatinization and the accessibility to the digestive enzymes differently. The impact of psyllium fiber on keeping the long and short-range order of wheat starch molecules was more pronounced than cellulose fiber.


Changes in expression profiles of antioxidant enzymes in diabetic rat kidneys

Background In diabetes mellitus, increased formation of reactive oxygen species due to high level of glucose in both blood plasma and tissues creates oxidative stress and damages the tissues. Antioxidants together with the antioxidant enzymes are very important in order to protect the cells against oxidative damage.
Effect of fiber addition on gelatinization crystallinity of wheat starch
Güven, Özge; Şensoy, İlkay (null; 2019-11-12)
Dietary fibers (DF) have been shown to decrease postprandial glucose levels of starch-based foods. One possible explanation is that competition between starch and fiber for water may limit starch gelatinization. Less gelatinized, more crystalline starch structure is less susceptible to enzymatic hydrolysis. It is essential to investigate the gelatinization and crystallinity of fiber-added starch since the information obtained could be correlated with the extent of starch digestion. In the present study, sho...
Differential effects of diabetes on CYP2E1 and CYP2B4 proteins and associated drug metabolizing enzyme activities in rabbit liver
Arinc, E; Arslan, S; Adalı, Orhan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-08-01)
The effects of diabetes on cytochrome P450 (CYP)-dependent drug metabolizing enzymes are yet to be clarified. The most widely used animals in these studies have been rats, and information on the effects of diabetes on rabbit liver drug metabolizing enzymes have been unavailable until now. In this study, for the first time, a significant induction of liver CYP2E1 is demonstrated via immunoblot analysis in alloxan-induced rabbits. The CYP2E1 content of diabetic microsomes was highly correlated with the activi...
The effects of streptozotocin induced-diabetes on rat testes and the recovery role of vitamin c
Güldağ, Damla; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2012)
Type I Diabetes is a multisystem disease having both biochemical and structural consequences. It causes alterations in carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolisms due to hyperglycemia. Type I diabetes is also correlated with increased formation of free radicals and decreased levels of antioxidant potential. Lower endogeneous antioxidant amounts and elevated lipid peroxidation levels in diabetes constitute the basis of risk factors for the development of diabetic complications. These complications lead to irr...
A non-conventional TD-NMR approach to monitor honey crystallization and melting
Berk, Berkay; Grunin, Leonid; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2021-03-01)
© 2020 Elsevier LtdCrystallization of glucose is a natural process that could occur in honey due to several reasons and glucose is one of them. In this study, a non-conventional TD-NMR pulse sequence, Magic Sandwich Echo (MSE), was used to monitor the crystallization of honey at 14 °C. Honey samples were seeded with glucose to induce crystallization. T1 and T2 relaxation times were also measured during 96 h of storage. Mono-exponential and bi-exponential relations were used to explain T1 and T2, respectivel...
