Prebiotic investigation of immunoglobulin

categories

Various bovine plasma fractions were investigated for their prebiotic potential and mechanism of action. To ensure a biorelevant research, the colonic SIFR simulation was preceded by a digestion and absorption step. The immunoglobulin fraction exhibited the most pronounced prebiotic potential. It was used specifically by Bacteroides vulgatus, Lachnoclostridium edouardi and Coprococcus comes, leading to the production of health-promoting SCFA (acetate, propionate & butyrate).
