Effect of depolymerized pyrodextrin on human intestinal flora

Bioscience and Microflora 15(2): 93-101

Effect of depolymerized pyrodextrin on human intestinal flora

A depolymerized pyrodextrin (DPD) was produced by hydrolysing pyrodextrin, a material of indigestible dextrin, with hydrochloric acid and then heating. The effects of this substance was examined in an in vitro fermentation test of human intestinal bacteria and in a continuous ingestion test on healthy subjects. The fermentability of the indigestible portion of DPD by 106 bacterial strains from the human intestine was examined in vitro.
