- Differences in concentration of risk markers in blood, measured post-prandial after a breakfast meal. [ Time Frame: Post-prandially after breakfast, 0-210 min ]Variables (blood glucose, insulin, incretin, inflammatory markers, markers of colonic fermentation) are measured after two-weeks ingestion of test products. The experimental day is terminated after a lunch meal.
- voluntary energy intake [ Time Frame: Post-prandially after breakfast, 0-210 min ]Energy intake at lunch is measured after two-weeks ingestion of test products. The experimental day is terminated after the lunch meal.
- Subjective satiety [ Time Frame: post-prandially after breakfast, 0-210 min ]The subjective sensation of satiety, hunger and desire to eat is measured using a (VAS) questionnaire.
- Differences in gut microbiota [ Time Frame: Faecal samples are collected after 14 days intake of test- and reference product ]The effect on gut microbiota of 14 days intake of test- and reference product are investigated in faecal samples.
