Did you know that 3 out of 4 consumers globally have heard about beneficial bacteria?
For 71% of people who purchased prebiotics in the past 12 months, digestive health is the first key benefit.
As a global leader in food, nutrition, and health markets, Roquette is deeply involved in the scientific research around the topics of gut health and prebiotics.
The Roquette team is participating in the International Scientific Conference of Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health on June 27-30 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The Roquette team contributes to the event with two scientifc posters.
Caroline Perreau, Senior Nutrition and Health Research Manager at Roquette, presents the two posters:
- IMMUNITY: NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber modulates gut environment with associated gut immune-modulatory effects in an in vitro model
Emerging studies suggest prebiotic fibers may support immunity. NUTRIOSE® is a resistant dextrin recognized as a prebiogut-microtic soluble fiber promoting colonic fermentation and modulating gut microbiota. In the present in vitro model combining fermentation and co-culture model, we demonstrated that NUTRIOSE® has immune-modulatory effects with strong anti-inflammatory properties. NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber may be a good candidate for helping to increase defense against pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract.
- METHODOLOGY/STRUCT-FUNCTION STUDY: Study: Prebiotic Dextrins Shape Human Gut Microbial Consortia and Glycoside Hydrolase Profiles during ex-vivo Continuous Fermentations
Diet is known to strongly influence the composition, richness, and stability of the gut microbiota either through a long-term diet modulation or short-term through dietary intervention. Regular consumption of prebiotics beneficially affects human health through the modulation of the immune system, improvement of the barrier effect or metabolism. However, understanding the mechanisms by which prebiotics modulate the composition and/or activity of microbiota is sometimes challenging because of the lack of species specificity of some compounds. Thanks to the continuous ex vivo fermentation model, we evaluated how prebiotics (including novel candidates) modulate the gut microbiota structure and functions.
