Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of cooked navy bean powder or rice bran consumption on the stool microbiome and metabolome of colorectal cancer survivors and healthy adults.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colorectal Cancer Control and Prevention Dietary Supplement: Placebo-Control Meals and Snacks Dietary Supplement: Cooked Navy Bean Powder Meals and Snacks Dietary Supplement: Rice Bran Meals and Snacks Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Objectives:

  1. To learn about how increased cooked navy bean powders or rice bran dietary intake affect the stool microbiota of colorectal cancer survivors and healthy adults.
  2. To determine whether cooked navy bean powders or rice bran consumption modulate microbial metabolism.
  3. To observe dietary changes in the blood, urine and stool metabolite profiles and inflammatory cytokines.
