As a nondigestible carbohydrate, oligosaccharides are a component of dietary fiber and are of particular interest for their metabolic properties [11].
The high content of nondigestible fermentable fibers present in yacon roots as FOS together with phenolic compounds could be largely responsible for the beneficial effects observed.
Lactulose and mannitol are both poorly absorbed, nondigestible carbohydrates, and an elevated ratio indicates either increased intestinal permeability to large molecules between the intestinal epithelial cells (lactulose) or decreased transcellular absorption (mannitol), reflecting a loss of absorptive surface area [20].
These parameters were used to characterize the ripening stage of the fruits which is related to the content of digestible and nondigestible carbohydrates (i.e., dietary fibre).
Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) including acetate (C2), propionate (C3), butyrate (C4), and valerate (C5) are produced by anaerobic bacteria through the fermentation of nondigestible dietary polysaccharides in the colon [18-20].
Bezoars are classified by their contents: phytobezoars involve fibrous nondigestible matter from fruit, vegetables, psyllium, or persimmon (diospyrobezoar); trichobezoars comprised ingested hair, prevalent in women aged less than 30 years; pharmacobezoars arise from enteric-coated aspirin, extended release capsules (nifedipine and theophylline), or sucralfate; and occasionally, bezoars result from ingested styrofoam, fungi, cement, or other inedible objects.
Numerous other anaerobic bacteria are capable of digesting plant materials, including nondigestible carbohydrates, nonstarch polysaccharides, resistant starch, and oligosaccharides [129] which humans cannot process.
The short-chain fatty acids acetate ([C.sub.2]), propionate ([C.sub.3]), and butyrate ([C.sub.4]) are produced at the intestine by anaerobic fermentation of nondigestible dietary fibers, being readily absorbed and used as energy source by colonocytes and by other body tissues including liver and muscle [181].
Prebiotics are typically specialized nondigestible plant fiber compounds that circulate undigested through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and enhance the activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut, presenting also a beneficial effect on CKD prognosis [73].
Prebiotics have been defined as nondigestible, but fermentable, foods that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of one species or a limited number of species of bacteria (Quigley 2012).
Prebiotics are natural nondigestible fibers that help promote the growth of helpful bacteria in an individual's gut.
The range of bacteria present in intestinal microbiota is responsible for the nondigestible compounds fermentation, as fibers, synthesis of vitamin K, protection against food pathogen, epithelial maturation, generation of compounds with antioxidant activity, lipids with biologic activity (Lipopolysaccharides--LPS), short-chain fatty acids, gases (H2, CO2, CH4 and H2S), and stool formation.
All 4 raptors in this case series developed lumen-filling gastric impaction caused by a large amount of foreign fibrous material despite having a natural behavior of casting nondigestible material.
Xylanase increased the ileal digestibility of nonstarch polysaccharides and concentration of low molecular weight nondigestible carbohydrates in pigs fed high levels of wheat distillers dried grains with solubles.
Lesions resembling pulse granulomas have been replicated in animal models by introduction of legume material into the oral cavity and skin [15,16]; over time, the starch component is degraded while the nondigestible cellulose moiety persists [15].
