Gut & Microbiology

The gut is our biggest interface to the outside world and is home to the microbiota – a unique community of around 100 trillion bacteria. Vital for our health and wellbeing, gut bacteria have many health-promoting functions, including digestion and the development and functioning of our immune system. At Danone Research & Innovation we recognise the importance of a healthy gut for our overall health and wellbeing. For over 50 years, we have carried out pioneering research into gut development and function, as well as the modulation of the gut microbiota through nutrition.
