Shared Notes


  • [1.1
    - Emulsifiers, widely used in processed food to improve food appearance, texture, and palatability due to their intrinsic properties. Emulsifiers affect the gut microbiota, disrupt the mucosal barrier, and promote inflammation; in mice models, they induce metabolic syndrome, colitis, and translocation of Escherichia coli.
  • [1.2
    - Short-term consumption of CMC (synthetic emulsifiers carboxymethylcellulose) in humans also significantly altered microbiota composition, reducing fecal SCFA levels, and inducing bacterial encroachment into the mucus layer.
