Food Micro Minutes

For this episode, join Josh Herskovitz and Emma Farquharson as these two "twins" from the Goddard and Nugen Labs use their "sibling humor" to summarize some of the most recent and fascinating literature in Food Microbiology.

This month, for our 10th episode (but 1st episode of Season 2), our speakers walk us through two new papers, while also splendidly enunciating the ways in which these findings connect to what currently is practiced within the field of Food Microbiology.

Josh and Emma examine how the low levels of persistent glucose and fructose in Western diets directly interfere with the colonization of Bacteroides thetaiotamicron - a critical organism for good health. Next, these two friends chat about the use of pectins as a colonization aide prebiotic, instead of the classical concept of prebiotics as fuel for cells!
We eat food every day, so it makes sense that it would be a consistently hot topic of research. So join us this month as we explore how foods can hurt AND help our health.

[[If you have a moment, be sure to rate us 5 stars. It might seem silly, but those ratings help our group to get more attention and to spread new literature to those of us too busy to sit down and comb through the primary literature. If you have any questions or comments, or if you have a suggestion on how we might make our podcast even better - feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts or email us at "foodmicrominutes@gmail.com".]]

 Here at F.M.M., we believe in open communication as a way of highlighting the massive benefits of collaboration between scientists. Thanks for listening!
