    HoloFood - Exploring host - gut interactions in major food systems

    The production of animals for human consumption can be optimised by modulating animal-associated gut microbiomes.  These gut microbiomes can be manipulated through the use of feed additives such as prebiotics and probiotics. 

    However, the microbial responses to feed additives might differ depending on the genetic background and developmental stage of the host 
    (= produced animal), as well as the farming environment. 

    HoloFood will use a holistic approach that will improve the efficiency of food production systems by deciphering the biomolecular and physiological processes triggered by incorporating feed additives and novel sustainable feeds in farmed animals.
