Abstract:

Apple pomace powder was analyzed for its functional properties which showed water holding capacity and fat absorption capacity of 3.39 g/g and 0.97 ml/g, respectively. Foam of apple pomace powder was not stable. Hypoglycemic potential of dietary fibers in managing diabetes is very well documented. In present study, the effect of apple pomace powder on α–amylase, glucose diffusion and glucose adsorption were studied by using in vitro studies. The mechanism by which dietary fiber of apple pomace powder could exerts hypoglycemic effect includes inhibiting amylase activity, glucose adsorption capacity and glucose diffusion retardation index. α- amylase inhibition ration in apple pomace powder was observed 80 per cent. Glucose diffusion retardation index (GDRI) was maximum at 30 min (69.23%) while found decreased after 30 minutes. Glucose adsorption capacity (GAC) of apple pomace powder increased gradually with increase of glucose concentration. All of these mechanisms contribute towards the rate of reduction of glucose adsorption in the intestine, as a result, decrease the postprandial serum glucose concentration.
