A recent trend has been to use commonly available foods in the prevention of disease. Such application is dependent on a food chemical and physical composition. We investigated functional ac tivity of substances derived from pentose when given in combination with various saccharides to rats. We observed that pentose-derivatives (fructosylxylosides, xylitol, some nucleosides) had a sup pressive effect on the elevation of blood glucose and insulin levels in rats given sucrose or soluble starch. The effect was due to the inhibition of disaccharide hydrolases. We also found that fructo sylxylosides and adenosine enhanced mineral (calcium and magnesium) absorption when given in combination with sucrose.
