dc.description.abstractInterferon gamma (IFN-γ) is associated with the inflammatory responses modulation, which could culminate in chronic metabolic diseases. In this context, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the acai (Euterpe oleracea Mart. mart.) pulp consumption on the anthropometric, clinical and biochemical parameters in women clinically healthy, with IFN-γ, respectively, smaller and higher than 5 pg/mL. Twenty four women in G1 (with IFN-γ concentrations smaller than 5 pg/mL) and sixteen in G2 (with IFN-γ concentrations greater than 5 pg / mL), consumed 200g per day of acai pulp during four weeks. Anthropometric and body composition measurements, biochemical and clinical data were evaluated before and after the intervention. After the intervention, there were significant reductions in diastolic blood pressure (p=0.035) and in plasma leptin concentrations (p=0.006) of G2 volunteers, while G1 volunteers did not present significant changes in these parameters. The acai pulp consumption during four weeks did not change metabolic homeostasis in the volunteers with IFN-γ smaller than 5 pg/mL and promotes a potential protective effect to metabolic diseases in that with IFN-γ higher than 5 pg/mL.pt_BR
