Example text

Many starch-rich foods, especially those which have been processed by heat treatment in moist conditions and allowed to cool, contain retrograded amylose, which forms an insoluble crystalline material that is resistant to enzymatic hydrolysis. 6 INDIGESTIBLE CARBOHYDRATES7 In addition to the carbohydrates in the plant cell wall, there are a range of indigestible carbohydrates in foods. These include fructan, inulin, and two series of oligosaccharides — those based on fructose and the galacto- series: raffinose, stachyose, and verbascose.

There are already a number of polysaccharide-based products available which their manufacturers claim can be used to formulate low-fat versions of traditionally high-fat products such as ice cream (see also, for example, Ward 2). Although not usually added to foods at significantly high levels, these additives significantly boost our intake of dietary fiber. 1 Relative sales in Australia of breakfast cereals plotted against the reciprocal of the comminution energy as determined from the electrical energy required to grind the cereal to fine particles in a small hammer mill (see text).

They are present in wood cellulose, are associated with pectin, and have been isolated from the pectic substances of mustard seed and sugar beet. Arabinogalactans — Substituted galactans that form part of the hemicellulose complex in many tissues. Although most emphasis has been given to arabinogalactans from woody tissues, polymers of this type are widely distributed. The water-soluble arabinogalactan of larch has received considerable study. * Adapted from Southgate, D. A. , Medical Aspects of Dietary Fiber, Spiller, G.
