The role of fibre intake in the management of patients with pancreatic disease is still controversial. In acute pancreatitis, a prebiotic enriched diet is associated with low rates of pancreatic necrosis infection, hospital stay, systemic inflammatory response syndrome and multiorgan failure. This protective effect seems to be connected with the ability of fibre to stabilise the disturbed intestinal barrier homeostasis and to reduce the infection rate. On the other hand, in patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, a high content fibre diet is associated with an increased wet fecal weight and fecal fat excretion because of the fibre inhibition of pancreatic enzymes. The mechanism by which dietary fibre reduces the pancreatic enzyme activity is still not clear. It seems likely that pancreatic enzymes are absorbed on the fibre surface or entrapped in pectin, a gel-like substance, and are likely inactivated by anti-nutrient compounds present in some foods. The aim of the present review is to highlight the current knowledge on the role of fibre in the nutritional management of patients with pancreatic disorders.

The impact of phytic acid on lipid digestion and curcumin bioaccessibility in oil-in-water nanoemulsions was investigated using a simulated gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The size, charge, and structural organization of the colloidal particles in the system were measured as the curcumin-loaded emulsions (7 mg curcumin per g lipid) were passed through simulated mouth (pH 6.8, 2 min), stomach (pH 2.5, 2 hours), and small intestine (pH 7.0, 2 hours) stages. After the small intestine stage, the level...

Understanding how the gut responds to food has always been limited by the available investigatory techniques. Previous methods involving intubation and aspiration are largely limited to liquid-only meals. The aim of this review is to describe how MRI has allowed analysis of the processing of complex multiphase meals. This has demonstrated the role of physical factors such as viscosity, fat and fibre content in controlling gastric secretion and motility. It has also allowed the description of cha...

: Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is a condition caused by reduced or inappropriate secretion or activity of pancreatic juice and its digestive enzymes, pancreatic lipase in particular. EPI can result in clinical manifestation and biochemical alterations causing reduced quality of life and life-threating complications. EPI is common in pancreatic disorders, where it should be suspected and actively investigated, and in many extrapancreatic conditions. There are various tests available to...

The addition of fiber is one of the most important dietary means to relieve constipation through lifestyle modification. Polydextrose (PDX) has been reported in several studies to increase fecal bulk, soften stools, and increase the number of defecations. However, there are few studies on the effect of PDX on colonic transit time (CTT). Therefore, the aim of this study was to demonstrate the effect of PDX on CTT and other aspects of gastrointestinal function during two weeks (Day 1 to Day 14), p...

: Type 3C Diabetes, or diseases of the exocrine pancreas has been reported to occur in approximately 30% of adult patient with pancreatitis. The incidence of glucose abnormalities or risk factors that may predict the development of abnormal glucose in the pediatric pancreatitis population is not known. We performed a retrospective chart review from 1998-2016 for patients who carry the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis (AP), acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP), and chronic pancreatitis (CP). We extr...

Obesity can be tackled by anti-obesity drugs, like Orlistat, that inhibit digestive enzymes such as pancreatic lipase. The drug has limited availability and is quite expensive. Earlier studies have shown that mesocarp cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) juice is capable of inhibiting pancreatic lipase and some types of saponins from other plants are also inhibitors for pancreatic lipase. This study seeks to isolate the saponin class from cucumber mesocarp, as well as determine its activity as a pancre...

Background: In functional gastrointestinal disorders a lack of objective biomarkers limits evaluation of underlying mechanisms. We aimed to demonstrate the utility of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for this task using psyllium, an effective constipation treatment, in patients and controls. Methods: Two crossover studies: 1) adults without constipation (controls, n=9) took three treatments in randomised order for 6 days - maltodextrin (placebo), psyllium 3.5g t.d.s and 7g t.d.s.; 2) adults with...

To explain the cholesterol-reducing effects of dietary fibres, one of the major mechanisms proposed is the reduced reabsorption of bile acids in the ileum. The interaction of dietary fibres with bile acids is associated with their viscous or adsorptive effects. Since these fibre characteristics are difficult to investigate in vivo, suitable in vitro methodologies can contribute to understanding the mechanistic principles. We compared the commonly used centrifugal approach with a modified dialysi...

This work investigated the physiochemical characteristics and preventive effects of purified pectin (H121, L13 and L102) with different esterification degrees on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis in mice. Three doses of each type of pectin were administered to C57BL/6J mice for 7 days before the DSS treatment, with dextran and Mesalazine as positive controls. Results showed that pathological factors including the body weight, the disease activity index (DAI), the colonic weight/length...
