Our P.B.F. blend delivers prebiotic fibers to nourish the billions of bacteria. Our prebiotic ingredients are resistant to digestion in the stomach and small intestine but are totally or partially fermentable in the large bowel. Prebiotics provide nourishment for the bacteria and the gut.
The P.B.F. prebiotics often results in a lower pH in the large bowel. The lower pH is the result of more short-chain fatty acid production. The major SCFA’s are acetate, propionate, and butyrate, and each has an important role in the gut and in host animal metabolism.
