Abstract: Polyphenols are known to exhibit a number of health promoting effects such as reducing the postprandial glycaemic response. It has been proposed that polyphenols in combination, as found together naturally in foods exert synergistic health effects compared to isolated polyphenols. In the body, polyphenols undergo structural changes throughout digestion which can alter their bioavailability […]
Abstract: The glycaemic index (GI) provides a measure of the increase in blood glucose (BG) levels after consumption of a food. Starch rich foods with high GI values cause a rapid rise in BG and frequent consumption of these types of foods can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Therefore, any compound that […]
Abstract: The baobab fruit is high in both dietary fibre and polyphenols. Results from previous studies show that foods rich in low glycaemic dietary fibre(1) and those that are abundant in polyphenols(2), can improve cognitive function. The aim of the study was to measure the effect of baobab fruit extract on different measures of cognition […]
Abstract: Background: The baobab fruit is high in both dietary fibre and polyphenols and therefore may increase satiety. The aim of the study was to measure the effects of baobab fruit extract on satiety. Methods: The study was conducted on 20 healthy participants. The study was a one-day single-blind crossover design. Participants were randomised to […]
Abstract: The baobab fruit (Adansonia digitata L.) is found throughout regions of Africa and is becoming increasingly recognized for its high nutrient and polyphenol content. Polyphenols have been beneficial for their effects on reducing the glycemic response (GR) and for improving various other metabolic parameters. Based on previous research, it was hypothesized that the baobab […]
Abstract: Increasingly, evidence suggests a role for polyphenols in blood glucose control. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the effect of polyphenol-rich sources in combination with carbohydrate sources on resulting postprandial glycaemic and insulin responses. A literature search was conducted using Medline, CINHAL and Web of Science databases. Selected studies included randomised […]
Abstract: Extracts from different plant sources have been shown to modify starch digestion from carbohydrate-rich foods and lower resulting glycemia. It was hypothesized that extracts rich in polyphenols, added to white bread, would improve the glycemic response and insulin response and increase satiety in healthy participants. An in vitro dose-response analysis was performed to determine […]
Recently, Nutrition Insight wrote an article about the resurgence of Baobab in the last few years. We can certainly agree that the Baobab fruit is gaining some serious traction in conjunction with the worlds growing interest in digestive health and sports nutrition – not to mention the Superfood craze. With companies like Yeo Valley, Costco, and […]
Recently, Reuters®, an international news agency headquartered in London, UK, published an interesting article discussing how the baobab “superfood” is affecting African communities, their livelihood, and whether or not we should be concerned about the sustainability of these iconic African trees. As the world’s leading processor and supplier of organic baobab, we take pride in […]
