Slowly Digestible Carbohydrates on Gastric Emptying
“Impact of Slowly Digestible Carbohydrates on Gastric Emptying Rates”
Consumption of slowly digestible carbohydrates can elicit higher satiety feeling compared to rapidly digestible carbohydrates, however not all individuals respond the same. The physiological mechanism that accounts for the satiety effect and the lack of consistency among subjects is not fully understood. The overall aim of this research is to determine if consumption of slow digestible carbohydrates (e.g., millet couscous) can induce non-responding subjects (i.e., with rapid gastric emptying) to activate the ileal brake and delay rate of gastric emptying.
Raw Corn Starch
Raw corn starch (30 g) will be added to 200 g of applesauce and served to participants, gastric emptying rate, and postprandial glucose will be measured.
No Raw Corn Starch
200 g of applesauce will be consumed and gastric emptying rate, and postprandial glucose will be measured.
