Gut Health

What about intestinal barrier or intestinal integrity?

Speakers: Prof Richard DUCATELLE, Prof Filip VAN IMMERSEEL

The intestinal lumen represents where the outside world is in closest contact with the blood. Integrity of the intestinal wall and strong tight junctions are key for healthy gut.

The size of the feed particles is also an important parameter affecting gut microbiota. Prof Richard Ducatelle and Filip van Immerseel debate on the importance of the gut and its microbiota on the performance of the animals. Knowing better the indigestible part is key to improve gut functioning.
