The extent to which the dietary loads of simple sugars, carbohydrates, protein, and fiber impact colonic fermentation in children is unknown. This study assessed the impact of dietary energy on gut microbial communities and metabolism using a three-stage in vitro continuous fermentation model. Two separate models, replicating the proximal, transverse, and distal colon regions, were inoculated with immobilized fecal microbiota from one of two female children. Three different fermentation media… CONTINUE READING
