- Synthesis of Rare Carbohydrates and Analogues Starting from Enantiomerically Pure 7-Oxabicyclo(2.2.1)heptyl Derivatives (Naked Sugars). Vogel, Pierre // Current Organic Chemistry;May2000, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p455
Recent applications of the naked sugar methodology are reviewed. General methods have been developed to transform enantiomerically pure 7-oxabicycloÂ(2.2.1)heptyl derivatives into rare monosaccharides, carbasugars, into a new doubly-branched imino-dideoxyalditol (iminosugar), into long-chain...
- Dietary Sugar in the Production of Hyperglyceridemia. Kuo, Peter T.; Bassett, David R. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Jun65, Vol. 62 Issue 6, p1199
Investigates the effects of two types of carbohydrate diets, one containing high sugar content and the other containing mainly starches, upon the plasma lipid concentrations of hyperglycerdemic and of normolipemic hypercholestremic patients. Altered lipid metabolism in the patients as reflected...
- Iron Complexes in Carbohydrate Chemistry. Jarosz, Slawomir; Zamojski, Aleksander // Current Organic Chemistry;Jan2003, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p1
Formation and synthetic applications of carbohydrate-iron complexes possessing C-metal bond are discussed. Some of these intermediates are stable and can be isolated and characterized. In many instances, however, the sugar carbon-iron complexes exhibit a limited stability and are directly...
- Effect of an extra intake of carbohydrate at dinner on morning after fasting plasma glucose values in types I and II diabetes. Belkhadir, J.; Rosset, T.; Elgrably, F.; Haardt, M.J; Bornet, F.; Tchobroutsky, G.; Slama, G. // British Medical Journal (Clinical Research Edition);12/7/1985, Vol. 291 Issue 6509, p1608
Examines the effect of extra intake of carbohydrates at dinner on morning after fasting plasma glucose values in diabetes. Deterioration of glucose concentration in type I diabetes; Implications of extra carbohydrate intake for postprandial blood glucose; Improvements in metabolic control.
- Get With the Program. Tucker, Miriam E. // Diabetes Forecast;Aug2014, Vol. 67 Issue 8, p17
The article focuses on the study depicting that people who take low carbohydrates helps in reducing the A1C (a measure of blood glucose control) in the U.S.
- Lactic acid production using two food processing wastes, canned pineapple syrup and grape invertase, as substrate and enzyme. Ueno, Takashi; Ozawa, Yasuhiro; Ishikawa, Masaki; Nakanishi, Kotoyoshi; Kimura, Toshinori // Biotechnology Letters;Apr2003, Vol. 25 Issue 7, p573
Canned pineapple syrup, a food processing waste, was utilized as a substrate for lactic acid production by Lactococcus lactis. To improve the utilization of sucrose from the syrup, grape invertase from grape juice derived from wine production was used for sucrose hydrolysis. The highest lactic...
- Protein kinase and phosphatase activities are involved in fructan synthesis initiation mediated by sugars. Noël, Giselle; Tognetti, Jorge A.; Pontis, Horacio G. // Planta;Aug2001, Vol. 213 Issue 4, p640
The induction of fructosylsucrose-synthesizing activity (FSS) by sugars was tested using detached primary leaf blades of several wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars, immersed in different sugars solutions for 24 h in the dark. The highest induction was brought about by sucrose, while glucose,...
- Facts about natural versus artificial sugars. Yadav, Sarika; Yadav, Neelam; Khurana, SM Paul // Indian Journal of Health & Wellbeing;2014, Vol. 5 Issue 7, p21
Sugars are chemically related carbohydrates, most of which are used in food. Based on the dietary significance, sugars can be naturally occurring, low-calorie sweeteners or artificial sweetener. Natural sugars being rich in calories can raise blood sugar levels. Added sugars are sweetener added...
