Polyphenols-microbiome interactions from a food microbiologist’s view


Prof. Michael Gänzle from the University of Alberta, Canada, will present on the interactions of phenolic compounds and intestinal microbiota during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018.

Phenolic compounds have multi-faceted interactions with intestinal microbiota, which are based on their use as substrate for microbial metabolism, their direct and selective antimicrobial activity, and their interference with polysaccharide hydrolysis by host and intestinal enzymes. This presentation will explore the modulation of intestinal microbiota, using microbiota of (fermented) foods as experimentally tractable models for intestinal ecosystems.
