Abstract Oatmeal porridge has been consumed for centuries and has several health benefits. We aimed to investigate the effect of oatmeal porridge on gut microflora functions. A total of ten healthy subjects ingested 60 g oatmeal porridge daily for 1 week. The following microflora-associated characteristics were assessed before and after the intervention: intestinal gas production following lactulose ingestion, faecal excretion of SCFA and faecal levels of urease and β-galactosidase. In addition… 
The gut microbiota and cardiovascular health benefits: A focus on wholegrain oats
Existing scientific data suggest that a high intake of wholegrain foods contributes to improved gut health and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Wholegrain oats are rich in dietary fibre and
Effects of a diet based on inulin-rich vegetables on gut health and nutritional behavior in healthy humans
TLDR
A higher consumption of ITF-rich vegetables allows a substantial increase in well-tolerated dietary fiber, which may in turn improve food-related behavior and lead to beneficial modifications of the gut microbiota composition and function.
Effects of oats on gastrointestinal health as assessed by in vitro, animal, and human studies.
TLDR
The evidence in humans shows beneficial effects of oats on gastrointestinal health, with supportive evidence provided by in vitro and animal studies, and the identification of best practices for the design of oat studies should be a priority in future research.
The Effects of Intact Cereal Grain Fibers, Including Wheat Bran on the Gut Microbiota Composition of Healthy Adults: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Evidence from human intervention studies for the effects of intact cereal fibers, and their active sub-fractions, on gut microbiota composition in healthy adults is reviewed to ensure the stability of the microbiota following long-term dietary change is explored.
FIBFLO – a study design for comparing the effects of diets on the microbiome and its metabolism: β-glucan or not?
TLDR
The present investigation was designed as a pilot study for establishing a multi-disciplinary approach, including collection and evaluation of anthropomorphic, microbiological, biochemical and immunological parameters to determine the effects of β-glucan fiber on composition and function of human intestinal microbiota in healthy volunteers.
Gut microbiota and therapeutic approaches for dysbiosis in irritable bowel syndrome: recent developments and future perspectives
TLDR
Dietary modifications including supplementation with fibers, prebiotics and probiotics are shown to improve symptoms and composition of gut microbiota in IBS, however the exact probiotic mixture beneficial for each individual remains to be identified.
The Effect of ß-Glucan Prebiotic on Kidney Function, Uremic Toxins and Gut Microbiome in Stage 3 to 5 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Predialysis Participants: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The ß-glucan prebiotic significantly altered uremic toxin levels of intestinal origin and favorably affected the gut microbiome in stage 3 to 5 CKD participants.
Non-invasive continuous real-time in vivo analysis of microbial hydrogen production shows adaptation to fermentable carbohydrates in mice
TLDR
It is concluded that real-time in vivo monitoring of gases provides a non-invasive time-resolved system to explore the interplay between nutrition and gut microbes in a mouse model, and demonstrates potential for translation to other animal models and human studies.
Effects of rice-based and wheat-based diets on bowel movements in young Korean women with functional constipation
TLDR
Among women with functional constipation, the BRD and WD both improved bowel function by reducing TCTT and increasing the number of bowel movements compared with the WRD group.

Improved Parameters of Lactose Maldigestion Using Lactulose
TLDR
The notion that lactulose and lactose may have similar clinical effects is supported, as well as the notion that fecal β-galactosidase significantly increased after lactuloses, which is a common genetic trait.
Increasing Fecal Butyrate in Ulcerative Colitis Patients by Diet: Controlled Pilot Study
TLDR
This pilot study shows that patients with quiescent UC can safely take a diet rich in oat bran specifically to increase the fecal butyrate level, which may have clinical implications and warrants studies of the long-term benefits of using oat Bran in the maintenance therapy in UC.
Colonic fermentation and markers of colorectal-cancer risk.
TLDR
It is concluded that soluble fiber as oat brain appears to have no advantage over wheat bran in modifying putative risk factors for colonic cancer.
Nutritional advantages of oats and opportunities for its processing as value added foods - a review
TLDR
An insight is provided on the processing of oats and its effect on their functional properties to provide an insight on the nutritional and health benefits provided by oats as whole grains and its value added products.
Effect of exclusive enteral nutrition on gut microflora function in children with Crohn's disease
TLDR
New data is presented supporting the hypothesis that the well-documented anti-inflammatory effect of EEN in children with active small bowel/colonic CD is brought about by modulation of gut microflora activity, resulting in an anti- inflammatory SCFA pattern.
Oats and bowel disease: a systematic literature review
TLDR
There is a lack of evidence to support a specific effect of oats on bowel function compared with other cereals, but a long-term dietary intake of oats or oat bran could benefit inflammatory bowel disorders, but this remains to be proven.
Short-chain fatty acids in the normal human feces.
TLDR
The study shows that the SCFAs are quantitatively the most important anions in the feces of healthy subjects and the pronounced individual variations in the concentrations are real biological variations and cannot be explained by methodological variations.
Supplementation of the Diet with High-Viscosity Beta-Glucan Results in Enrichment for Lactobacilli in the Rat Cecum
TLDR
In vitro experiments confirmed that some lactobacilli utilize oligosaccharides (degree of polymerization, 3 or 4) present in β-glucan hydrolysates and have relevance to the use of purified β- glucan products as dietary supplements for human consumption.
