New Study: High Fibre, Low Gluten Diet

on November 20, 2018

The changes in intestinal comfort and body weight relate to changes in gut bacteria composition and function, researchers say. An increasing number of people choose a low-gluten diet, even though they’re not allergic to it. The trend has sparked public debate about whether or not low-gluten diets are recommended for people without allergies. Now, researchers have looked into it.

“We demonstrate that, in comparison with a high-gluten diet, a low-gluten, fiber-rich diet induces changes in the structure and function of the complex intestinal ecosystem of bacteria, reduces hydrogen exhalation, and leads to improvements in self-reported bloating."

“Moreover, we observed a modest weight loss, likely due to increased body combustion triggered by the altered gut bacterial functions,” explains Oluf Pedersen, a professor in the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research at the University of Copenhagen, and the trial’s leading principal investigator.

 

SUMMARY:

Eating a low-gluten, high-fiber diet changes bacteria in the gut, decreases gastrointestinal discomfort such as bloating, and is linked to modest weight loss, according to new research.
