In vitro fermentation of mixed linkage glucooligosaccharides produced by Gluconobacter oxydans NCIMB 4943 by the human colonic microflora.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to develop selectively fermented (prebiotic) carbohydrate molecules which would also result in the generation of butyric acid. Gluco-oligosaccharides produced by Gluconobacter oxydans NCIMB 4943 from various types of maltodextrins were evaluated for their fermentation by mixed cultures of human colonic microflora. The selectivity… (More)
