Scientists at ProDigest in collaboration with the Laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology (LabMET) at Ghent University, in Belgium conducted this study, the first to apply 16sRNA genes-based pyrosequencing in a Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem (SHIME) study. The pyrosequencing technique allowed the scientists to explore more deeply and confirm findings from a previous Ghent University study which showed that Advanced Ambrotose powder exhibited prebiotic effects along the entire colon. Study was at least partially funded by Mannatech.
