- ... Mice were fed low-fibre, or that supplemented with soluble fibre (konjac glucomannan, KGM; inulin), or insoluble fibre (cellulose) to determine how these three fibres modulated the acute colonic responses to an azoxymethane (AOM) treatment. Results indicated that KGM and inulin exerted greater anti-genotoxic effects compared to cellulose and up-regulated the gene expressions of glutathione S-trans ...

- ... A simple one-step purification process was provided to extract KGM from KF by phase separation. The results showed that appropriate temperature control was a key factor and the products were inodorous, colourless and of high purity at the optimal temperature 68°C. In this purification, soluble sugar and starch of extracted KGM were nearly clearly reduced and up to 95%, 80% (T68) of protein and ash ...
