Abstract

Before initiating a test series for the treatment of idiopathic hypercalciuria with bran, we analyzed some different varieties of this food-type for their physical, chemical, and hygienic qualities. The following parameters were analyzed in rice-, rye-, soy-, and two varieties of wheatbran (t1, t2): calcium-binding capacity; distribution of the particle size; water-holding capacity; dietary fiber; contents of heavy metals; contamination with aflatoxins (B1) and chlorinated hydrocarbons.
