Abstract: Several studies have suggested that frequent vegetable intake reduces the risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity due to the presence of compounds such as dietary fiber (DF) and other associated bioactive compounds, which exert positive effects on human health. DF includes non-starch polysaccharides, resistant oligosaccharides and lignin. These substances can pass unaltered through the gastrointestinal tract or be fermented by colonic microbiota, resulting in positive physiological effects. Taioba (Xanthosoma sagittifolium) is an edible aroid originated from tropical America that exhibits significant nutritive value. The tuberous portions are consumed by several populations worldwide, whereas the leafy portions of Taioba are generally discarded. The objective of this research was to partly characterize the DF of lyophilized taioba leaf (LTL), and to assess the possible in vivo physiological effects when fed to male Wistar rats receiving a normal AIN 93G diet, or a high-fat diet. Taioba leaves were boiled in water, lyophilized and chemically characterized. Biological evaluation was conducted to assess the effect of LTL on the intestinal short-chain fatty acid production, bile acid (BA) metabolism, and biochemical parameters. Total, soluble and insoluble dietary fiber contents in LTL were 35.23 ± 0.26%, 6.82 ± 0.06% and 28.04 ± 0.21%, respectively. Monosaccharide composition showed glucose as the main component (61%), suggesting the presence of cellulose. Animals fed the AIN 93G diets containing taioba leaf had increased fecal mass and fat excretion, in addition to improved BA profiles by diminishing the proportion of the secondary acids. In the rats fed the high-fat diet, the addition of LTL resulted in lower weight gain and liver fat concomitantly with higher fecal mass and lipids. Furthermore, these rats exhibited a higher fecal short chain fatty acid and bile salt concentration in the feces than the control group, which had a lower fiber intake. Additionally, lower serum cholesterol and higher body ash content were found in the groups receiving the leaf. The results suggested that taioba leaves have compounds with high BA binding capacity and high fermentability. These properties indicate that the leaf has the potential of lowering the risk of colon cancer and cardiovascular disease Advisors/Committee Members: UNIVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE CAMPINAS (CRUESP), Amaya-Farfán, Jaime, 1941- (advisor), Farfan, Jaime Amaya, 1941- (advisor), Universidade Estadual de Campinas.
