Anyhow I agree with your logic about having a healthy gut and needing butyrate. But not specificaly eating fermentable fibers to increase it.
I hope you are not trying to justify eating resistant starch bc that is unnecessary.
Butyrate or other SCFA are made from protein, carbs and fibers in the colon, it is very hard to avoid those from forming.
Wheatbran and oatbran are also supportive for SCFA and wheat bran decrease transit time.
edit oops correction
I'm not trying to justify it because it doesn't even occur to me that it's unhealthy. Tempered with knowledge, I eat what's convenient and what my body tells me to eat. If my body and mind don't complain, I eat it.
