Tag Archives: Dietary fibre

Dietary fibre is a key nutrient for optimizing gut health through fermentation by commensal microbiota in the colon. The vast majority of studies that support the health benefits of dietary fibre are observational, whereas little evidence from interventional studies is available and mechanisms involved in their effects on gut microbiota and immune response are poorly understood. A recent study, led…

Dietary fibre is a key nutrient for optimizing gut health and it has been previously documented that a fibre-deprived diet may have a negative impact on the colonic mucus layer and gut microbiota functionality. Resistant starch (RS) is a form of starch that is not digested in the small intestine and is therefore considered a type of dietary fibre.  …

Dietary fiber from plant-based foods is the most common fuel for some bacterial species in the gut microbiota and in some contexts has been shown to play a key role in protecting the host against immune-mediated diseases such food allergies and even neurological disorders. A diet rich in microbiota-accessible carbohydrates (MACs), which are complex carbohydrates found in fruits, vegetables, whole…

The incidence of food allergies has increased dramatically in western countries over the past 20 years and the gut microbiota seems to be a promising target for preventing and treating them. However, mechanisms by which gut microbiota is involved in the loss of oral tolerance remain unclear.   A recent study, led by Dr. Charles Mackay from the Monash Biomedicine…
