Gut Microbes love fibre

As you know, gut microbes love fibre. Scientists in the UK have reviewed over 100 years of publications to understand just how much, across the broad fibre family. The 29 different types of fibre reviewed were consistently fermented by gut microbes – with differences in the amount and type of fermentation. This is why it is important to eat a variety of foods containing different fibers (also called plant diversity).
