This project aims to investigate the effects of dietary fat quality and fiber on metabolic regulation, and explore the association between diet, gut microbiota, and metabolic regulation.
Recent research suggest that the gut microbiota will affect health and the development of non-communicable diseases by changing metabolic regulation and the host's immune system.
Diet is one of the factors that will impact the composition and diversity of the bacteria in the gut.
This project was therefore initiated to investigate the relation between diet, gut microbiota, and metabolic regulation.
The project includes two human dietary intervention studies – the FB study and the fiber study – where the effect of fat quality and fiber on gut microbiota and metabolic regulation in healthy individuals has been examined.
