A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggested how plant N-glycans linked to plant proteins, common in the gut due to the prevalence of plants in the human diet, may be going down with a processed food diet. "The work reveals insight into how our gut microbes use plant N-glycans as a nutrient source and also provides tools to modify plant N-glycans to mitigate allergic responses, either from foods or plant-expressed therapeutics," researchers wrote.
