Background Fermented foods are ubiquitous in human diets and often lauded for their sensory, nutritious, and health-promoting qualities. However, precise associations between the intake of fermented foods and health have not been well-established. This is in part due to the limitations of current dietary assessment tools that rely on subjective reporting, making them prone to memory-related errors and reporting bias. The identification of food intake biomarkers (FIBs) bypasses this challenge by… Expand

Colonization Ability and Impact on Human Gut Microbiota of Foodborne Microbes From Traditional or Probiotic-Added Fermented Foods: A Systematic Review
It is suggested that a complex interplay between food and gut microbiota is indeed occurring, although the possible mechanisms for this interaction, as well as how it can impact human health, still remain a puzzling picture. Expand
Metabolomics as a Tool to Elucidate the Sensory, Nutritional and Safety Quality of Wheat Bread—A Review
This review gives emphasis on the achievements in wheat bread metabolomics by highlighting targeted and untargeted analyses used in this field and the molecular mechanisms involved in the sensorial and nutritional characteristics of wheat bread. Expand


Biomarker of food intake for assessing the consumption of dairy and egg products
A systematic search of the scientific literature is conducted to evaluate the current status of potential BFI for dairy products and BFIs for egg products commonly consumed in Europe, finding only a limited number of compounds have been reported as markers for the intake of these products and none have been sufficiently validated. Expand
Biomarkers of food intake for cocoa and liquorice (products): a systematic review
There is a need for more studies to determine acceptable BFIs for both cocoa and liquorice, and 18-GA is identified as a promising BFI; however, important information on its validity is missing; thus, more research is necessary. Expand
Fermented Foods in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
The purpose of this introductory chapter is to highlight fermented foods and beverages with an emphasis on those that have scientific information available regarding their bioactive constituents, and those which have been studied for specific host mechanisms in animals and for human health. Expand
Biomarkers of food intake for nuts and vegetable oils: an extensive literature search
An extensive literature search is conducted to evaluate current knowledge about potential BFIs of nuts and vegetable oils and finds α-linolenic acid, urolithins, and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid seem to be the most plausible candidate BFIs for walnuts, whereas for almonds they could be α-tocopherol and some catechin-derived metabolites.

Identification of Milk and Cheese Intake Biomarkers in Healthy Adults Reveals High Interindividual Variability of Lewis System–Related Oligosaccharides
The increase in serum of LeA and BGH after cow-milk intake in adults calls for further investigations considering the beneficial health effects on newborns of such oligosaccharides in maternal milk. Expand
Fermented Foods as a Dietary Source of Live Organisms
The findings from this survey revealed that many fermented foods are a good source of live lactic acid bacteria, including species that reportedly provide human health benefits. Expand
Biomarkers of intake for coffee, tea, and sweetened beverages
A variety of compounds derived from phenolic acids, alkaloids, and terpenes were shown to be associated with coffee intake and trigonelline and cyclo(isoleucylprolyl) showed a particularly high specificity for coffee intake. Expand
Polyphenol metabolome in human urine and its association with intake of polyphenol-rich foods across European countries.
Highly diverse food-derived metabolites (the so-called food metabolome) can be characterized in human biospecimens through this powerful metabolomic approach and screened to identify novel biomarkers for dietary exposures, which are ultimately essential to better understand the role of the diet in the cause of chronic diseases.

Combining traditional dietary assessment methods with novel metabolomics techniques: present efforts by the Food Biomarker Alliance
This review provides an overview of food intake biomarker research and highlights present research efforts of the Joint Programming Initiative ‘A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life’ (JPI-HDHL) Food Biomarkers Alliance (FoodBAll). Expand
Discovery and validation of urinary exposure markers for different plant foods by untargeted metabolomics
It is demonstrated that it is possible to discover and validate PEMs for several foods and food classes in an intervention study with a mixed dietary background, despite the large variability in such a dataset. Expand
