Healthy individuals may prefer low gluten diet to tackle the incidence of the intestine or additional body weight.
Although keeping a gluten-free diet is a lifetime necessary for allergic people, nowadays, many people choose a low gluten diet, although they are not allergic to the dietary substance. This trend has triggered public debate about whether low gluten diets are recommended for non-allergic people. Researchers from Copenhagen University among others have just looked into that. The findings were reported in the Nature Communications magazine.
In an intervention study of healthy Danish adults, an international team of scientists shows that a gluten-free but rich fiber diet changes the community of wet bacteria and reduces gastrointestinal discomfort as flowering and is associated with moderate weight loss. Changes in the weight of comfort and bowel body are about changes in the composition and function of wet bacteria.
"We show that, compared to a high gluten diet, a fiber-rich gluten-free diet causes changes in the structure and function of the complicated bowel ecosystems of the bacteria, reduces the spread of hydrogen, and leads to improvements is a self-reported fight. In addition, we saw the loss of moderate weight, similar due to increased body congestion caused by the changing wet bacteria functions, "explained the leading lead investigator and trial, Professor Oluf Pedersen.
The case appears to be the change in a dietary fiber composition.
The researchers undertook a randomized, controlled, transverse experiment with 60 healthy middle-aged Danish adults with two eight-week interventions comparing a low gluten diet (2 g gluten per day) and a high gluten diet (18 g of gluten day), separated by a minimum period of a minimum of six weeks with a normal diet (12 g gluten per day).
Both diets were agreed in a number of calories and nutrients, including the same amount of dietary fibers. However, the composition of fibers was very different between the two diets.
Based on their observations of food fermentation patterns that have changed from wet bacteria, researchers gather that the effects of low gluten diet in healthy people can not be due to lower gluten It is taken but instead of a change in the composition of dietary fiber by reducing fibers of wheat and rope and replaced with fibers of vegetables, brown rice, corn, oats and quinoa. No basis for changing diet recommendation yet.
Gluten diet diet was previously offered to reduce gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal bowel syndrome, disorders that occur in up to 20 per cent of the general population of the West.
The current study suggests that even some healthy individuals may choose a low gluten diet to address disorders of the intestine or additional body weight.
"More long-term studies are needed before public health advice can be given to the general population. Especially, because we find dietary fibers – not just gluten absences – the main cause of the changes in discomfort and body of weight intestines, we now believe that our study is a seamless call to the food industry. Gluten may not necessarily be a healthy choice, many people think it is, "said Pedersen.
"Most gluten-free food items available on the market today are significantly deprived of dietary fibers and natural nutrient ingredients, so it is clear that the availability of food items without rich gluten high quality, fiber-enriched, that is fresh or processed to consumers who prefer a gluten-free diet. Such initiatives are key to mitigating gastrointestinal discomfort and, as well as helping to facilitate weight control in the general population by adjusting the split microbiota, "it came to the conclusion.
