Research involving the microbiome has dominated the research world in recent years. The microbiome is an ecosystem made up of diverse populations of both commensal and pathogenic bacteria. Patient health and clinical outcomes are highly influenced by those interventions that alter the balance between these populations. Carbohydrate and fiber qualities are pivotal in determining which populations thrive. Preventing dysbiosis or overgrowths of pathogens in our gut revolves around eating less simple sugar and more beneficial fiber. A diet rich in fiber can foster populations of beneficial gut flora and greater diversity overall within the microbiome. However, not all carbohydrates and fibers are created equal.
Join Dr. John Bagnulo MPH, PhD, and Laura Dority MS, RD, LD to review the role of different types of carbohydrates and fiber sources on the gut microbiome and gut health. This webinar will review carbohydrate and fiber types, sources, and the current guidelines/recommendations for incorporating fiber into clinical practice.
