Researchers at the Polytechnic Institute of Mexico (IPN) say that green mangoes and bananas have many properties to prevent colon cancer.
According to the Research Center for the Development of Biotic Products, these fruits are sources of starch-resistant and dietary fiber.
Research led by Luis Arturo Bello, explained that the starch is the main polysaccharide, when it is completely disorganized, digestive enzyme is hydrolysed to convert glucose, which increases the content of carbohydrate in the blood. .
The scientist explains that there are a lot of cereal types, especially corn, wheat, rice, and some roots and tubers, such as potatoes, manioc, sweet potatoes and taro, where starches are used in the food industry.
However, after the study, mangoes and completely non-ripe bananas are more resistant to starch.
In this phase, starch has a physiological benefit that regulates blood cholesterol and contributes as a caloric intake to diabetics as a contribution to blood glucose.
However, the main quality becomes the colon line protector and when it is reached directly from the microbial, it produces a butyrate with a short fatty acid chain.
Butirone has anti-inflammatory properties, which provides enough energy for the cells that align in the colon, so that the presence of this fatty acid has a better protective effect, especially in the inflammation of this organ process, the researcher has continued.
According to the authorities healthIn Mexico, 15,000 cases of this type of cancer are diagnosed annually, as well as the loss of six thousand 500 patients.
The researcher said that it is important to evaluate the processing, storage and production methods of these fruits to make them more quality, more sensible, nutritional and functional.
Based on the results of his research, Bello Pérez has proposed a nutritional quality (offering products that come from nutritional and functional properties for the body) with a starch-resistant effect.
This is because its consumption generates beneficial effects healthIn addition, it can be a great help to prevent obesity and overweight, which causes serious problems health cardiovascular disease or diabetes.
