The data concerning to the expression of intestinal peptides are shown in Figure 6.

Thirty minutes later with 2. These data indicate that yacon attenuates diet-induced obesity in rats by decreasing fat absorption.

As can be seen from the Table, the volume fraction data varies with regard to pressure and time. They open their stomata at night, thereby avoiding transpiration during periods of great daytime heat, and convert carbon dioxide to malic acid. Blood samples were collected into plane glass tubes.

Among the external variables, vacuum pressure can be considered the most important, given that it represents the force that produces the pressure gradient between the vacuum phase of foods and the atmosphere surrounding the external liquid.

Antioxidants in yacon products and effect of long term storage. On another hand, Aloe vera has enjoyed a long history of providing a myriad of health benefits, being one of the herbal remedies most frequently used throughout the world [ 7 ], [ 8 ]. How to cite this article J. The data obtained are initial weight and final weight of the fruit subjected to impregnation with Aloe vera solutions.

Yacon syrup: beneficial effects on obesity and insulin resistance in humans.

Yacon [ Smallanthus sonchifolia Poepp. Resveratrol exerts anti-obesity effects via mechanisms involving down-regulation of adipogenic and inflammatory processes in mice. Journal List J Obes v. Different hormones, nutrients, and transcription factors have been shown to regulate lipid accumulation during adipocyte differentiation [ 4 ].


Within this context, vacuum impregnation VI has been largely used to obtain a rapid penetration of solvated compounds in plant tissues together with a homogeneous concentration profile of the solutes in the final products [ 12 ]. In addition, dietary polyphenols directly or indirectly impact on gut function, investiggaciones pathogenic bacterial growth investigcaiones promoting the production of the microbial short chain fatty acids by beneficial microbial populations [ 23 ].

These findings raise the interesting possibility that adipose tissue could be a target organ of the yacon roots in the management of obesity. In foods processing, this aim is achieved by developing actions and processes that allow the enrichment of vegetable products with desirable compounds.

Valdez Fragoso, and T. Ana Paula Gusso, email: The sections were mounted in aqueous mounting medium with antifading agents Biomeda, Foster, CA. It can be noted a trend for bakery products formulations using yacon flour, and the outcomes were positive for both technological properties as well as for sensory evaluations Key words: Proximate analysis gave results of: Even more is investigated if the effects of yacon are modified by the type of diet consumed.

Colorimetric method for determinations of sugars and related substances. However, while the porosity value is an indicator, it is not sufficient to characterize foods completely or to predict their behavior during vacuum impregnation. Endl fructooligosaccharides as a potential novel source of prebiotics.


Yacon: health benefits and technological applications

The functional food market has grown significantly as a consequence of increased promotion and consumers awareness of healthy eating and lifestyle [ 1 ]. The vacuum period and relaxation invwstigaciones represent two important variables that affect the results of applying Investigaciohes. The substitution with the Aloe vera solution rich in carbohydrates of the yacon pores typical of the gel of the parenchymatous tissue of Aloe vera also contributes to the carbohydrate cienfificas of the final product; according to the literature, monosaccharides and polysaccharides such as glucomannan are present in Aloe vera.

Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice. Experiment 2 In a second design, after 12 weeks rats which fed standard diet continued with the same chow, while animals under HFD were changed to a standard diet with or without yacon, according to the following scheme Figure 1. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, v. This tuberous roots investigacionds been attracting interest from researchers due to their nutritional and technological properties.

Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Changes in protein expression of Akt, the most important molecule of the insulin signaling in target organs, were measured using Western blot analysis Figure 5 f.

Leptin, another adipokine, regulates weight balance, investigacioes, and lipids metabolism [ 52 ]. HFD Y original magnification X. Robinson] chemical composition and use: Conflicts of Interest The authors declare that there are no conflicts of interest. Rats were injected intraperitoneally with 0. Published online Oct
