BENEO-Institute says "thank you FNCE® for the great interest in gut microbiota!"

Over 10.000 nutritionists gathered in Boston from 15-18 October for their yearly convention, organized by the AND (Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics). With the key theme being Gut microbiota matters, do you know how to influence it? the BENEO-Institute was spot on as confirmed by many lectures around this topic and a strong interest at the booth. Also the specific media briefing called for high attention with many editors, writers and journalists wanting to know more about prebiotic fibers and their effect.
Digestive health and what it means for overall health is on the mind of the nutrition community as well as in consumer's minds with more then 60% of US consumers concerned about maintaining a healthy digestion.
