This time around we asked Dr Joan Vermeiren who works in the Nutrition Science Group of Cargill to introduce their work in Work Package 7 of the MyNewGut project:

  1. Can you introduce Work Package 7 and how it fits into the MyNewGut project as a whole?
  2. What is already known about how ingredients interact with the human gut microbiome?
  3. Why did you choose these ingredients/compounds, why are they interesting to research?
  4. What kind of microbiome / health change are you expecting?
  5. How will you know these novel ingredients are safe?
  6. How will these products be different than the ones already existing on the market?
