A method of utilizing the physiological activity of a rare saccharide, wherein physiological-activity sensitive cells are treated with the rare saccharide to modify the function of the cells. A composition containing, as an active ingredient, a rare saccharide which is introduced into physiological-activity sensitive cells and has an effect of modifying the function of the cells. The cells are human cells. The composition is a functional food, a drug, or a cosmetic. The rare saccharide is a rare saccharide belonging to aldose and/or ketose. The aldose is D-allose, and the cells are selected from the group consisting of cancer-cell proliferation inhibitory activity sensitive cells and active-oxygen production inhibitory activity sensitive cells. The ketose is D-psicose, and the cells are selected from the group consisting of chemokine secretion inhibitory activity sensitive cells, microglia migration inhibitory activity sensitive cells, and hypoglycemic activity sensitive cells.


Problem: A malaria transmission blocker or a malaria parasite growth inhibitor is provided as a result of finding a drug which inhibits malaria parasite growth in the body of a vector mosquito. Solution: A malaria parasite growth inhibitor or transmission blocker containing a rare sugar such as D-allose or D-psicose as an active ingredient.


Problem: A malaria transmission blocker or a malaria parasite growth inhibitor is provided as a result of finding a druq which inhibits malaria parasite growth in the body of a vector mosquito. Solution: A malaria parasite growth inhibitor or transmission blocker containinq a rare sugar such as D-allose or D-psicose as an active ingredient.

Object: To provide an agent for sustaining satiety or a method for sustaining satiety, with which an individuals food intake is reduced by sustaining satiety, and as a result, pathological conditions such as obesity due to overeating can be prevented and improved. Means for Resolution: An agent for sustaining satiety containing D-psicose as an active ingredient and a method for sustaining satiety by the ingestion of D-psicose. Advantageous Effect: Satiety can be sustained although the increase in blood glucose level after eating is suppressed. A means for sustaining satiety which is useful for those who are anxious about their blood glucose level and those who are health conscious can be provided.


Disclosed herein are a method for improving the saltiness of a food or drink, and the saltiness of a food or drink containing a salt and a grain. The saltiness enhancing method enhances the saltiness of salt-containing food or drink by adding a rare sugar to a raw material of the food or drink. The saltiness enhancing method is a method for reducing the salt content in a food or drink containing a salt, or a method for masking a grain odor due to a grain in a raw material of the food or drink that contains the grain as a part thereof and contains a salt. The rare sugar contains at least D-psicose.

A thickening composition which contains specific amounts of a metal salt-enclosing dextrin and a thickening polysaccharide and which has a good dispersibility, raises the viscosity rapidly, and has an excellent thickening effect can be produced by the steps of obtaining the metal salt-enclosing dextrin by mixing, dissolving, and homogenizing a dextrin and a metal salt in water, followed by drying, and adding the metal salt-enclosing dextrin to the thickening polysaccharide followed by mixing or granulation. The thickening composition makes it possible to provide a thickening composition which has a good dispersibility, raises the viscosity rapidly, and offers an improved thickening effect per unit mass in a wide variety of water-containing foods such as water, teas, refreshing beverages, dairy beverages, soups, and thick liquid foods.
