Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the weight reduction effect of yeast hydrolysate-SR101. Thirty female college students participated in a 6 week weight control program. All subjects were randomly assigned to either the placebo group, YH-SR101 (yeast hydrolysate-SR101) group, or eX diet (product of yeast hydrolysate-SR101) group. The mean energy intake of the placebo group was 1445.2±364.0 kcal (carbohydrate: 60.1%, protein: 25.6%, fat: 14.3%), while those of the YH-SR101 and the eX diet group were 1505.6±296.2 kcal (carbohydrate: 60.5%, protein: 22.2%, fat: 14.8%) and 1353.8±326.3 kcal (carbohydrate: 63.2%, protein: 20.9%, fat: 15.9%), respectively. The placebo group lost 0.19±1.14 kg of body weight, while the treatment groups (YH-SR101 and eX diet) lost 1.13±0.83 and 1.54±0.74 kg of body weight, respectively. There were significant differences in the decrease in body weight between the placebo and the treatment group (p<0.05). There were also significant differences in the decrease in fat mass between the placebo and treatment group (p<0.05). Furthermore, the BMI of the YH-SR101 and the eX diet groups also differed significantly before and after the diet program (p<0.05). Additionally, the BMI and waist size reduction of the treatment groups (YH-SR101 and eX diet group) differed significantly when compared to the placebo (p<0.05). The reduction of the resting metabolic rate (RMR) blood glucose, total-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride did not differ significantly among groups. Taken together, these findings indicate that consumption of yeast hydrolysate-SR101 and eX Diet may lead to decreased body weight and fat.
