Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Three types pasta products manufactured from either 100% durum wheat semolina or mixture of 70% durum wheat semolina and 30% red sorghum flour (red sorghum-containing pasta) and mixture of 70% durum wheat semolina and 30% white sorghum flour (white sorghum-containing pasta) will be used in this study.
Each of the 30 subjects recruited for the study will consume each of the 3 pasta products once only. The pasta products will be presented as breakfast on 3 separate morning, 7-14 days apart in a randomised crossover design, after an overnight fast of 10-12 hours.
