Organised by IFST Food Science and Nutrition Special Interest Group

The gut microbiome is an emerging area of great interest to nutritionists and food scientists alike. Beneficial bacteria may be incorporated into products (probiotics) or encouraged through dietary changes, particularly eating more fibre (prebiotics). However, the type of fibre may matter as much as the quantity. Micronutrients may also play a part in what microbes are favoured over others.

What you will learn about:

Micronutrients in the diet in relation to the gut microbiome, particularly vitamin B12 and the role of wheat as a positive contributor to the diet through its fibre content.

Target Audience:

IFST members and non-members, Food scientists, Nutritionists, Academics and Students.
