Different environmental factors may shape human gut microbiome variation. Although diet has a major influence on gut microbiome shifts within an individual, at population level, diet contributes little to gut microbiome variation. Although our gut microbiome might contribute to interindividual variability in response to diet, close monitoring of how temporal variation in diet alters gut microbiome composition and stability at…

Specific dietary modifications have been an area of focus to treat a myriad of diseases such as obesity and IBS. However, the individual response to dietary interventions can vary greatly, partly due to our unique gut microbiota compositions. Personalized nutrition is a promising area of research that aims to predict physiological response to dietary interventions based on a person's gut microbial…

Many consumers and healthcare providers are aware that certain probiotics may be beneficial for health. But they sometimes have difficulty identifying high quality products in the marketplace. What is a high quality probiotic product? It contains microbial strains that are properly identified, characterized and quantified, it meets specifications for purity, it is safe for its intended use, and it is…
