  • Fisch:
    It scores with many unsaturated fatty acids. These strengthen mucus production, cell growth and thus ensure that the protective function is improved.
  • Obstbrei:
    This is about the swelling substances: bacteria in the intestine break down swelling substances into short-chain fatty acids. These in turn nourish the mucous membrane. Bulking agents can be found, for example, in grated apple or carrot mash.
  • jacket potatoes:
    During cooling, resistant starch is formed, which is broken down into butyric acid. As a short-chain fatty acid, it supplies the intestinal cells with energy and thus stimulates the growth of the intestinal mucosa.
  • brown bread:
    It provides important roughage and valuable carbohydrates.
