Brief Summary:
The aim is to study the effects of flaxseed mucilage, rich in dietary fiber on apparent fat and energy digestibility in young adults.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Obesity Dietary Supplement: fiber drink and fiber bread

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.
