STELA Dairy Research Centre, Institute of Nutrition and Functional foods, Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada, G1V 0A6 The breakdown of solid food in the stomach plays an important role in the release and hydrolysis of macronutrients and their postprandial metabolic responses. In the stomach, the forces acting in vivo on food particles during the disintegration are difficult to reproduce. Two in vitro models were developed to study the gastric disintegration of solid food: 1) anchor geometry... Read More... Download PDF
