This study was performed to investigate the influences of resistant starch (HM: HI-MAIZE) and HM-D (HI-MAIZE DIET) fortified with D-factor (consisted of Psyliium husk, polydextrose and hydrocitric acid) on the glucose and bile acid absorption and production of short chain fatty acids (SCFA). HM-D absorbed more glucose and bile acid than did HM. The glucose transport of HM and HM-D against dialysis membrane showed 77% and 68% for 4h, respectively. After 24h, bile acid transport of HM and HM -D showed 65% and 62.3%, respectively. The HM and HM-D produced 217.8 mM and 264.0mM of SCFA, respectively. The production of butyric acid in HM-D (32.7mM) showed higher than that of HM (26.9mM). The addition of D-factor to HM increased the physiological function of dietary fiber through the glucose and bile acid absorption and production of SCFA.
