Fermentable fibers affect the structure and function of gut microbiota, with potato starch leading to the greatest increase in short-chain fatty acids

Of all non-digestible carbohydrates, the scientific community is paying special attention to resistant starches (RS) that reach the colon intact, where they are subsequently metabolized via gut bacteria. Their benefits for host health may range from affecting insulin’s control of blood sugar and weight to slowing down chronic kidney disease progression and they likely arise … Continue reading Fermentable fibers affect the structure and function of gut microbiota, with potato starch leading to the greatest increase in short-chain fatty acids
