Abstract

The effect of dietary fibres on constituents of complex carbohydrates in various tissues of streptozotocin induced diabetic rats is presented by analysing different constituents of complex carbohydrates in presence and absence of dietary fibre. Wheat bran was effective in preventing the decrease (14%) in total sugars in spleen and an increase in total sugars in stomach (33%) during diabetes. Decrease in uronic acid content during diabetes in spleen was prevented to the extent of 25% by the presence of wheat bran in the diet. The other parameters which were affected by the presence of wheat bran in the diet during diabetes are amino sugar (brain and stomach), sulphates (liver) and protein (lungs and stomach). Guar gum was effective in preventing the decrease in total sugar content in spleen by 28% and sulphate content in liver by 14% during diabetes. Variation in protein content in lungs was observed in diabetes. The results indicated beneficial role of dietary fibres like wheat bran and guar gum on complex carbohydrates to varying extents in different tissues.
