High-protein, low carbohydrate (CHO) diets are efficient and popular in weight loss regimes. Nonetheless, negative effects on gut health might be expected if less carbohydrate and more protein reach the large intestine due to the formation of adverse protein degradation products. This study compared concentrations of fecal bacterial metabolites (SCFA, Ammonia, N-Nitroso compounds) of subjects on different diets and their impact on genotoxicity in vitro.
