Flax Mucilage and Apparent Nutrient Digestibility
Effect of Flaxseed and Flaxseed Mucilage on Energy Digestibility, Lipid Profile and Appetite
The aim is to study the effects of flaxseed mucilage, rich in dietary fiber on apparent fat and energy digestibility in young adults.
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.
