Gut Bacteria Can Help Fight the Harmful Effects of Processed Foods like Cereals and Pasta, Scientists Find

(Divina Ramirez) Research shows how a certain bacterium found in the human gut can break down a chemical commonly found in processed foods, such as ultra-pasteurized milk, pasta, chocolate and breakfast cereals. Published in Cell Host & Microbe, the findings generate invaluable insight into how gut microbes break down processed foods and lower the risk of health conditions often associated with those foods, such as obesity and diabetes.
