Detailed Description:

A 3 times 1-wk randomised crossover dietary intervention study, where the full diet is provided to 17 young subjects along with different flaxseed mucilage preparations. During the last five days, fecal samples are collected. Fasting blood samples are collected on day 1 and 8 in each period and appetite sensation is registered three times daily before the main meals.
