Project: Optimization of the equolproduction by the human intestinal microbiota

project duration
01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-06
Factors influencing the equolproduction will be determined by an equolproducing consortium, recently isolated at LabMET. These in vitro findings will then be extrapolated on populationlevel, by which will be searched for a link between human nutrition, colonbiota and equolproduction. Finally, the possibility to use the bacteria as a probiotic will be evaluated.
