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 content of the final product; according to the literature, monosaccharides and polysaccharides such as glucomannan are present in Aloe vera.

How to cite this article. Therefore, the effect of yacon on modulating these adipokine levels in HFD rats was evaluated. However, no data are currently available on the ability of yacon roots to affect adipose tissue. It is known that obesity is not always spontaneously reversible, so its treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach [ 9 ].

PPARs, obesity, and inflammation.

Such is the case mentioned in [ 30 ]where banana, mamey and mango displayed a linear increase in investiggaciones values of X up to certain limits approximately mbarafter which the level of impregnation decreased. After clotting, samples were centrifuged and serum was used for biochemical determinations.

Yacon: health benefits and technological applications

Additionally, the presence chlorogenic and caffeic acid in yacon roots could also contribute to the hypolipidemic effect observed after yacon supplement [ 18 ]. The functional food market has grown significantly as a consequence of increased promotion and consumers awareness of healthy eating and lifestyle [ 1 ]. 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.

We examined the beneficial effects and tolerance of yacon syrup on human health. Increasing evidence indicates that the excessive fat depots, particularly visceral adiposity, are linked to a chronic low-grade inflammatory state [ 145 ].


Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice. Obesity is now considered as a chronic inflammatory state linked to an abnormal cytokine production and the activation of inflammatory signaling pathways in adipose tissue [ 135 ].

The sample analyzed was the one that produced significant results in the impregnation trials as regards volume and mass fraction, namely the sample subjected to a pressure of Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology.

Iron bioavailability from ferric pyrophosphate in rats fed with fructan containing yacon Smallanthus sonchifolius flour. Food intakes were recorded daily as follows: In yacon, the luminance is seen to rise as the pressure increases; that is to say, pressure tends to increase transparency. LA-cp rats fed a high protein fiber diet. Yacpn Table 1 we present the results obtained by applying different pressures and times for impregnation, with a relaxation time of 10 min for all the samples.

During VI, the vegetable porous fraction composed by the intercellular spaces, is filled by an external solution to a degree that depends on yacn factors including the applied process conditions sub-atmospheric pressure level, process duration and temperaturethe osmotic pressure and viscosity of the impregnation fluid [ 20 ]the size and shape of the samples, its effective porosity pore size and distribution which affects the capillary pressure of fluids within the vegetable tissue and its response to mechanical stress [ 18 ], [ 21 ], [ 22 ], [ 23 ] Bearing in mind, the new methodologies for obtaining foods with added value, and the wide range of possibilities for capitalizing on yacon, our aim is to evaluate the response to the application of the technique of vacuum impregnation with a solution of Aloe vera in order to create products that can be produced on an industrial scale, cientifics and internationally.

Prebiotic effectiveness of fructans of different degrees of polymerization.

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

An improvement in the morphometric parameters was also observed in supplemented rats Supplemental data, Table S1. Yacon Smallanthus sonchifolius -derived fructooligosaccharides improves the immune parameters in the mouse. Chlorogenic acid exhibits anti-obesity property and improves lipid metabolism in high-fat diet-induced-obese mice. The extract was dried, dissolved in water, and desalted with a mixed exchange resin Amberlite MB3, Sigma. The pores are not homogeneous in size.



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

The authors hypothesized that these operating conditions could have produced a high level of deformation i. Endl fructooligosaccharides as a potential novel source yacoon prebiotics. Yacon effects in immune response and nutritional status of iron and zinc in preschool children.

Metabolic remodeling of white adipose tissue in obesity. Glycemic profile and prebiotic potential “in vitro” of bread with Yacon Smallanthus sonchifolius flour. Brazilian Journal of Food Technology, v. Yacon Modulates Adipocyte Size and Gene Expression in Adipose Tissue At the cellular level, obesity is characterized by an increase in the number hyperplasia and size of individual adipocytes that have differentiated from preadipocyte in fat depots [ 5 ]. Hypoglicemic effect if the water extract of Smallantus sonchifolius yacon leaves in normal and diabetic rats.

The body weight and body length were used to determine the following anthropometrical parameters: This effect was more pronounced when yacon was accompanied by a standard diet. AP2; fatty acid synthase: Experimental studies have demonstrated that the addition of oligofructose to the diet improves the growth of Bifidus and Lactobacillus in the colon enhancing mineral absorption and gastrointestinal metabolism in both humans and animals [ 1619 ]. Fat pad weights are expressed as the sum of visceral, retroperitoneal, and epididymal weights.

Robinson belongs to a member of Asteraceae family, which ranges through the Andean region in South America [ 1415 ].
