Exploring Fiber Fermentation Profiles

ProDigest developed the Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem (SHIME®​), which explores the fermentation profiles of fibers and evaluates their impact on gut microbial composition, including any prebiotic effect. This model demonstrates that fibers ferment at different rates and locations in the colon, which can result in varying gastrointestinal side effects.
