A Wheat Bran Fraction For Use To Combat Salmonella Infection


The present invention relates to a method of reducing human salmonellosis due to consumption by contaminated food. More in particular, the present invention discloses a specific wheat bran fraction that reduces colonization of Salmonella bacteria in the gut of animals which are part of the human food chain. The present invention indeed demonstrates that animals such as broilers which are given feed supplemented with the latter feed bran fraction -and are then infected with Salmonella- have a significantly reduced number of Salmonella bacteria in their cecum and shed less bacteria in their environment when compared to control animals which are given non-supplemented feed.
