Aquaculture Nutrition: Gut Health, Probiotics and Prebiotics provides a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge of the gut microbiomes of fish and their importance with respect to host-fish health and performance, providing in-depth, cutting-edge fundamental and applied information. Written by many of the world’s leading authorities and edited by Dr Daniel Merrifield and Professor Einar Ringø, this important book discusses in detail the common mechanisms for modulating microbiomes, particularly at the gut level (e.g. probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics).

Gluten free recipes are based on a gluten-free diet, which is a diet that does not allow protein called gluten. You can find gluten in wheat, rye, barley and triticale which is a grain that is a cross between rye and wheat grain. The reason for excluding gluten is that this protein is known to cause inflammation in the small intestine which is seen in people with celiac disease. This diet is thus recommended for people suffering from celiac disease and those with sensitive digestive systems.
