The intestine is exposed to a dietary thiamine source and a bacterial source in which the vitamin is synthesized by the normal microflora of the large intestine. Very little is known about thiamine uptake in the large intestine. The aim of this study was, therefore, to address this issue. Our results with human-derived… CONTINUE READING
