Linking Lactic Acid Bacteria from Food with the Gut Microbiome

Targeting Microbiota 2021 pasolliDr. Edoardo Pasolli, from University of Naples Federico II, Department of Agricultural Sciences, Italy, will  join the Targeting  Microbiota Congress which will be held on October 20-22, 2021 and will present a talk entitled "Linking Lactic Acid Bacteria from Food with the Gut Microbiome".

According to his latest researches, he confirms that large quantities of live lactic acid bacteria are consumed within fermented foods, but it is not yet known to what extent the LAB they ingest become members of the gut microbiome. By analysis of almost ten thousand metagenomes from human samples, Dr. Pasolli shows that the prevalence and abundance of LAB species in stool samples is generally low and linked to age, lifestyle, and geography. Moreover, we demonstrate that closely related LAB strains occur in both food and gut environments and provides unprecedented evidence that fermented foods can be indeed regarded as a possible source of LAB for the gut microbiome.
