About the webinar:

The gut microbiome and its influence on health continues to be a hot topic in research. From a dietary perspective, the research is exciting as diet plays a major role in shaping and changing the microbiome, and in turn the potential health outcomes. In this webinar, Dr Joanna McMillan will explore the emerging evidence for the role of fermented foods and drinks that are currently on trend (think: kombucha, sauerkraut, kefir). You’ll also learn about the influence, both positive and negative, of ingredients used in food products, including sweeteners, emulsifiers, prebiotics and probiotics, as well as the influence of particular foods and nutrients on gut health.
