  1. PERMANOVA analysis on Bray-Curtis distance (9999 permutations); post-hoc pairwise comparison: uncorrected (left) and Bonferroni-corrected p values (right, in italics); each group was named after its diets during the two challenge phases: HUFA-deficient diet at both phases (LH1-LH2), or only at phase 2 (C1-LH2); hypoproteic diet with high starch supply at both phases (HG1-HG2), or only at phase 2 (C1-HG2); control with standard diets (C1-C2)
