Improve gut health by stimulating fibre fermenting bacteria 13th February 2020

Increasing the understanding of fibre is presenting new perspectives on the valuable role it can play in gut health and therefore, within performance-enhancing nutritional strategies. Stimulating fibre fermenting bacteria to accelerate the development of a fibre degrading microbiome can play an important role in working toward antibiotic free production and low minerals.

During the IPPE show last year the misconceptions about fibre content being low in monogastric diets was discussed and how fibre can ultimately benefit the host if microbiota can convert it into beneficial metabolites. This year, we evolved this discussion to understand the mechanisms by which the microbiota responds to the inclusion of a new class of functional additive ‘stimbiotic’ to the hosts’ diets.
