Enterotype

The microbial community living in our gut is a unique combination of different types and amounts of bacteria. It is not a permanent bacterial mix, but an evolving one that can be affected by our diet, environmental factors, medicinal treatments, etc. Scientific research in the frame of the European MetaHit Project (2008 – 2012) has been able to identify and characterise three main different microbiota groups or enterotypes.
