Additional File 1:

Individual meal (a) and total fat oxidation (b) in response to the RS content of a test breakfast. Meal fat oxidation, assessed via measurement of 14CO2 in expired air, and total fat oxidation, assessed via indirect calorimetry and calculated from non-protein RQ, and was measured in 12 healthy adults.

Additional File 2:

Individual area under the glucose curve vs. meal (a) and total fat oxidation (b) in response to a test breakfast. Meal fat oxidation, assessed via measurement of 14CO2 in expired air, and total fat oxidation, assessed via indirect calorimetry and calculated from non-protein RQ, and was measured in 12 healthy adults. Data from all three test meals (0%, 5.4%, and 10.7% RS) is shown. The relationship between area under the glucose curve and fat oxidation remains the same (i.e. no relationship) when represented as individual doses or, as in this plot, for all doses (see Figure S3).

Individual area under the glucose curve vs. meal fat oxidation in response to a 0% (a) or 5.4% (b) RS test breakfast. Meal fat oxidation, assessed via measurement of 14CO2 in expired air, and total fat oxidation, assessed via indirect calorimetry and calculated from non-protein RQ, and was measured in healthy adults. Data from individual test meals is shown.
