Figure 1

Effect of 3-prebiotic formula administration on the ratio of fecal bacterial flora in healthy subjects. Numbers of Bifidobacterium spp. (B), Clostridium perfringens (C), and total anaerobic bacteria (T) are expressed as log values of colony-forming units (cfu) per gram weight of feces. (a) Log10 B/T cfu/g wet weight of feces. (b) Log10 C/T cfu/g weight of feces. (c) Log10 B/C cfu/g wet weight of feces. In the control period and follow-up period, the control formula was used and not the 3-prebiotic formula. significantly differ compared to that of week 0 of the administration period (). significantly differ compared to that of the control period (). significantly differ compared to that at week 2 of the administration period ().
