Sponsored Symposium at FNCE® - The gut microbiome and prebiotics: a powerful synergy for health and prevention

Saturday, October 26, 2019 
Our gut is home to the largest community of microbes that play a key role in maintaining host health and metabolic balance. In this symposium, you will learn what prebiotics are and what science demonstrates is their role in supporting health and in managing metabolic disease. Also, there will be a live technical demonstration session on fibers and what they can do in a food matrix to improve gut dysbiosis.
