Pennie Taylor, Michael Conlon, Tony Bird

In recent years, we’ve come to realise that a healthy gut is pivotal to a healthy metabolism.  Along with a healthy brain and a healthy immune system.

The explosion of scientific research in this field. with CSIRO at the forefront.  Has therefore led to the discovery that feeding our gut bacteria with a particular type of fermentable fibre called resistant starch.  Is consequently a major piece in the gut health puzzle.

The CSIRO healthy gut diet provides information on how the gut functions and what can go wrong.  Along with a collection of recipes specifically developed to be high in fibre and resistant starch.

Written by a team of experienced CSIRO researchers.  Including nutritional scientists and dieticians.  Many of whom are internationally recognised authorities in nutrition and gut health.  This book contains simple, practical advice.  Along with a wide range of tasty, easy-to-make recipes designed to benefit the gut and overall health.
