Abstract

The main theme of the 3rd COST 98 Workshop held in Gozd Martuljek (Slovenia) on 26-28 April 1996, was to focus on Impact of food antinutrients on microbial ecology of the gut. Several of the chapters in this Proceedings describe and discuss the findings of scientists taking part in COST 98 Action relating to the nutritional consequences of pathogenicity and its blocking and draw attention to their potential practical importance. In addition, in some of the papers presented there is a strong focus on establishing the main features of the biological mechanism underlying the overgrowth of commensal bacteria in the gut, other shifts in the flora and infection by pathogens and their inhibition by dietary components. Indeed, this forms the most fundamental part of the approach which is aimed at understanding the effect of the many and varied components of the diet on human and higher animal metabolism and health in the general context of structure-function relationship between the physiologically active ingredients in our food and the responses of the digestive system to these.
