If you are in Paris between now and August 4th 2019, the “Yogurt in Nutrition initiative” invites you to go and see the “Microbiota” exhibition at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie.
“Microbiota” at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie
Inspired by the best-seller, “Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ” by Giulia and Jill Enders, and planned in partnership with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) the “Microbiota” exhibition tells you, in a simple way, all that you want to know about your gut but never dared to ask.
The exhibition is divided into 3 parts:
With a full and detailed tour of the digestive system, the visitor can see digestion in actual images, discover the role of the different organs involved in this process, and understand the mechanisms which underlie food allergy or intolerance phenomena, etc.
In the second part, you go into the microscopic realm to discover the composition of microbiota, its function and its essential role in health. The visitor will then be able to meet intestinal bacteria through a tactile model, feed microbiota by choosing bacteria which will be able to digest the elements of the food bolus before visiting the exhibition’s “laboratory” to better understand the work of researchers in microbiota.
Finally, there is space for valuable advices to keep this very precious intestinal flora in good shapeand discover fermented foods and the role of yogurt.
