Impact of diet on human gut microbiota composition and functionality


Prof. Bernhard Watzl, Head of the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry of Nutrition at the Max Rubner-Institut, Karlsruhe, Germany and Adjunct Professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology will present on overview on the role of diet on the human gut microbiota during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018.

According to Prof. Watzl:
A key factor in determining gut microbiota composition is diet. Western diets result in significantly different microbiota compositions than traditional diets. The aim of this overview is to summarize the recently published evidence from human in vivo studies on the gut microbiota-modulating effects of diet. It addresses the role of dietary patterns, whole foods, food constituents, as wells as food-associated microbes and their influence on the composition of human gut microbiota.
