Introduction of the study

The composition and metabolic activity of the human gut microbiota is influenced by many factors, including adiposity. Accordingly, there is growing interest in nutritional modulation of the gut microbiota and its implications for obesity and metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes(1). NUTRIOSE®, a wheat dextrin soluble fibre, has been shown to have beneficial effects on markers of insulin resistance(2), appetite regulation(3) and weight management(4), possibly acting via mechanisms governed by the selective modulation of the gut microbiota. 

Conclusion of the study

NUTRIOSE® was selectively fermented by Clostridium Cluster XIVa and Roseburia genus in all vessels of the gut model.

NUTRIOSE® favourably altered the metabolic profile of the gut ecosystem, with elevated concentrations of butyrate and propionate, which have both been purported to have energy metabolism and appetite-regulatory properties.
