03-182 Audio CD: SYMPOSIUM: Carbohydrates and health


Indigestible carbohydrates, including resistant starch, are resistant to digestion and absorption in the human small intestine but have complete or partial fermentation in the large intestine. Consumption of indigestible carbohydrates by humans has been shown to result in decreased glycemic response in healthy individuals, decreased glycemic response in diabetics and increased insulin sensitivity in healthy individuals. This session will discuss the importance of indigestible carbohydrates--including resistant starch--on disposition index, which can predict the development of type 2 diabetes, fat oxidation and weight management.
