Insoluble Fiber in Young Barley Leaf Suppresses the Increment of Postprandial Blood Glucose Level by Increasing the Digesta Viscosity
Catheterization test of artificial digesta. (a) The delta blood glucose levels in rats at 0–120 minutes. (b) The delta insulin levels in rats at 0–60 minutes, after small intestinal infusion of the control, BLP-containing (BLP in the panel), and BLP-derived insoluble fiber-containing artificial digesta (insoluble in the panel) were measured. Each data point represents the mean ± SEM for (control and insoluble fiber) and (BLP). A significant interaction was found between the effects of addition and time after administration (, multiple comparisons). Delta blood glucose levels without a common letter differ (, multiple comparisons).
