Through recent analytical results from Southern Cross University, Kfibre has confirmed levels of Tricin which is tied to a-amylase inhibition, a key enzyme involved in the breakdown of carbohydrates in food. This inhibition can effectively lower the glycaemic index (GI) of any carbohydrate containing meal. Peer reviewed research proposes that -amylase inhibitors display many potential health uses.
The polyphenol profile of the Kfibre retail product below presents the whole plant origin and preservation of the polyphenols through processing and in the context of weight management via the lowering of glycaemic index and modulation of blood glucose levels.
There are strong peaks at 5 & 7 representing flavonoid glycoside – tricin diglycoside, which is tied a-amylase inhibition, thus slowing, or restricting the digestion of starch to available carbohydrates.
The simple benefit is :
- Lowering of Glycaemic Index (GI)
- Reduction in post prandial Blood Glucose Levels (BGLs)
- Promotion of healthy gut bacteria & digestion[3
