Impact of Kamut® Khorasan on gut microbiota and metabolome in healthy volunteers

Summary The aim of this study was to explore in 30 healthy volunteers the impact of whole Kamut® Khorasan on the fecal microbiota by the phylogenetic microarray platform High Taxonomic Fingerprint (HTF)-Microbi.Array, and metabolic profiles by using solid-phase microextraction–gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (SPME–GC–MS). With regard to the fecal microbiota, a tendency towards a reduction in Bacteroides/Prevotella and an enrichment in Clostridium cluster XIVa was observed after whole Kamut® Khorasan intake, compared to whole durum wheat adopted as control diet. The metabolic profile of subjects administered with the whole Kamut® Khorasan-based diet, in comparison … Continue reading Impact of Kamut® Khorasan on gut microbiota and metabolome in healthy volunteers
