Abstract: Abstract:Chitosan has been shown to have lipid-lowering effects, but little is known about the effect of chitosan on colonic pH value and short-chain fatty acid (SFCA) concentration. This study was designed to investigate the effect of chitosan on colonic bacterial fermentation and fecal bacterial enzyme activity in rats fed a diet enriched in cholesterol. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed a diet containing 5% cellulose (CE) or 5% chitosan (CS) for 15 days. Significantly increased fecal cholesterol and triacylglycerols contents were observed in rats fed the chitosan diet. In addition, lower cecal acetate and butyrate concentrations and higher fecal acetate, propionate, and butyrate concentrations were observed in rats fed the CS diet when compared to those fed the CE diet. Although rats fed with the CS diet exhibited an elevated cecal (cecum with contents) weight and higher pH value, no significant difference in fecal pH value was observed between the CE group and the CS group. Chitosan significantly decreased fecal mucinase and beta-glucuronidase activities. Results from this study show that chitosan may alter fecal bacterial enzyme activities and SCFA concentrations and the beneficial effects of chitosan on the colonic environment may occur in the distal colon in rats.
