Insoluble Fiber in Young Barley Leaf Suppresses the Increment of Postprandial Blood Glucose Level by Increasing the Digesta Viscosity

Figure 4

The coefficient of viscosity of (a) gastric contents, (b) small intestinal contents, and (c) cecal contents in rats after administration of no fiber diet (control in the panel), BLP containing diet (BLP in the panel), and BLP-derived insoluble fiber-containing diet (insoluble fiber in the panel). Each data point represents the mean for . Significant differences were found between the coefficients of viscosity of the small intestinal and cecal contents among the groups ( , ANCOVA). Coefficients of viscosity for gastrointestinal digesta without a common letter differ ( , multiple comparisons).
