The dietary fibre (DF) complex of cereal grain has been suggested as one of the main constituents behind the protective effects of the grain related to the reduction of the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Gut fermentation of the DF complex is proposed to be one factor behind the protective effect of grains. The large intestinal fermentation of the DF complex by gut microbiota results in short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) production and liberation and further microbial metabolism of the DF associated phenolic compounds.
