|Obesity||Dietary Supplement: Pulse fibre Dietary Supplement: Control|
The main objective of our study is to assess the effects of pulse fibre supplementation on weight loss in an overweight and obese adult population.
Primary objective - To determine the effects of a 12 week intake of 15g/day of pea hull fibre on weight loss supported by body composition measures.
Secondary objective - To measure glucose control and appetite regulation in overweight and obese adults consuming 15g/day of pea hull fibre compared to a placebo control with the use of plasma HbA1c and an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||60 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|

Experimental: Pulse Fibre
The intervention group will receive a biscuit containing 5g/serving of yellow pea fibre to be eaten 3 times per day approximately 30 minutes prior to their 3 largest meals.
Dietary Supplement: Pulse fibre
Yellow pea hull fibre incorporated into a biscuit at 5 g/serving.
Placebo Comparator: Control
The placebo group will receive a biscuit an isocaloric control biscuit that is similar in taste and texture and without pulse fibre to be eaten 3 times per day approximately 30 minutes prior to their 3 largest meals.
Dietary Supplement: Control
Control biscuit with no yellow pea hull fibre.
- Change in baseline fat mass at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Assessed with dual energy x-ray absorptiometry.
- Change in baseline glucose tolerance at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Assessed via HbA1c and an oral glucose tolerance test.
- Change in baseline appetite at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Subjective appetite assessed with visual analog scales and objective appetite with a weighed lunch buffet.
- Change in baseline lipid profile at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Serum lipid
