New doctoral thesis by Hanna Palmqvist

The aim of the thesis was to explore the effects of whole grains of wheat, oats and rye on the dog's metabolism, intestinal microbiota and SCFA. Rye is an unusual ingredient in dog food. Overall, the results from the doctoral project indicate that whole grain rye can affect the dog's microbiota and its function in a health-promoting direction.
