Changes of blood glucose and insulin levels after oral administration of RG, HRG or RMD to rats fed with an experimental diet. RG, resistant glucan; HRG, hydrogenated resistant glucan; RMD, resistant maltodextrin. Test substance (400 mg/2.5 ml) was administered orally to each rat which was fed with an experimental diet (n = 5 per group) and blood was collected from the tail vein at indicated periods. Values were means ± SD. *,#, The elevation of glucose in RG, HRG, and RMD were significantly lower than that of glucose at each time point, at P < 0.05 by Dunnett’s post hoc test. There was no significantly difference among RG, HRG, and RMD by Tukey’s post hoc test
