It was examined whether undigested protein, namely resistant protein, affects glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secretion in rats fed high amylose corn starch (HACS). Rats were fed one of three experimental diets for 28 d: casein without HACS, casein with HACS or dashigara with HACS. Dashigara is produced from Katsuobushi (smoke-dried skipjack tuna) treated with microbial protease. The apparent digestibilities of casein and dashigara are 96.0% and 84.5%, respectively. The amount of rat cecal butyric acid and propionic acid were as follows: the dashigara with HACS group > the casein with HACS group > the casein without HACS group. The dashigara with HACS group had significantly greater cecal butyric acid and lower cecal succinic acid than the casein with HACS group. The GLP-1 concentration in portal vein blood increased as the amount of butyric acid and propionic acid in the cecal contents increased. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of PCR-amplified 16S rRNA gene fragments showed that the composition of cecal microbiota differed among the three groups. These results suggest that resistant protein contained in dashigara promotes GLP-1 secretion by controlling fermentation efficiency as well as the fermentation profile of HACS through the changes in cecal microbiota in rats fed HACS.
