Who is Flora?
Gut Flora is another word used to describe the microbiome – the billions of bacteria in the gut.
Food For Flora recipes are based on scientific research findings on the microbiome & are designed to feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut microbiome.
I’ve been reading up on gut flora and the microbiome since 2010.
I’m fascinated by research into microbiome, but I’m not a scientist / dietician / nutritionist, so I have looked to key scientific research sources on the microbiome, including:-
- Professor Tim Spector & team at the British Gut Project
- Justin & Erica Sonnenburg & team : The Sonnenburg Lab at Stanford University
- The American Gut Project
- Monash University Department of Gastroenterology : Research into a high fibre, high prebiotic diet for healthy individuals
