A study conducted at the University of Chicago has found that a short-chain fatty acid called butyrate, produced by Healthy Gut Bacteria, may help prevent food allergies and irritations such as those triggered by peanuts. The researchers used an oral solution of butyrate to prevent an anaphylactic response in mice exposed to peanuts. Without enough fiber in the diet, beneficial gut bacteria die off, leading to a condition known as "gut dysbiosis." The researchers have developed a solution of polymers that cloak butyrate, which could be used as a potential treatment for peanut allergies and other chronic diseases.
