Abstract

The human large intestine is colonised by a dense microbial community (microbiota) whose activities have a profound effect on human health. With the development of modern molecular tools a much better understanding of the composition of the microbiota has been gained in recent years. The microbiota can be modulated by diet, especially the type and level of certain dietary carbohydrates that serve as energy source for the microbes, and this modulation appears to depend on the composition of the individual microbiota present in each person. A brief overview will be given of the current knowledge in this field of research.
