MEXICO CITY (EFE) .- Green mangoes and plantains have properties that prevent colon cancer, according to the National Polytechnic Institute researchers.
According to research results at the Center for the Development of Biotic Products, IPN specialists whose fruits are sources of starch-resistant and dietary fiber.
Investigated by Luis Arturo Bello Pérez, starch is the main polysaccharide, and when cooking is completely disorganized, the digestive enzyme is hydrolyzing the content of the carbohydrate in the blood.
He recalled that there are a lot of cereal types, especially corn, wheat and rice, and roots and tubers such as potatoes, cashews, sweet potatoes and taro, where starches are used in the food industry. However, the study found that mango and banana non-mature fruits were resistant to starches.
At this stage, starch has physiological benefits, such as the blood cholesterol regulation and the necessary caloric intake of diabetics without overcoming gluten.
The main quality is that it converts it into a cell that protects it from the colon lines, and when the intestine is reached directly, the microbiota, which produces the butyrate, produces short-chain fatty acids.
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.
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.
Bello Pérez recommends nutritional quality (foods with positive functional nutrition and functionality for the body) to make the female resistant.
Therefore, because its consumption has beneficial effects on health, it can be a great help to prevent obesity and overweight, a source of major health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Health authorities say 15,000 cases of colon cancer are diagnosed every year and more than 6,500 suffer from life as a result of this.
As a result of the research, Luis Arturo Bello Pérez proposes nutritional quality (nutritional value for foods and functional properties for the body) to resist the emesis, as they are beneficial for the consumption of health.
In addition, it can be a great help to prevent obesity and overweight, the origin of major health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
