The fact that SCFAs are primarily formed as a result of bacterial activity on dietary residues for the colonic environment suggests that there may be differences in osmolarity as well as pH and buffer capacity between the fed and fasted state. Such differences have also been observed experimentally (28,29). The mean total fluid volume in the ascending colon has been determined by a scintigraphic method to average 162 mL, with individual volumes ranging between 82 and 303 mL (30). Using magnetic resonance imaging, the total volume of free water in colon was estimated to be less than 20 mL, with individual values between 1 and 100 mL (24).

Despite the dissolved electrolytes and the pancreatic and biliary secretions, the fasted state intestinal fluid appears to be hypoosmotic. Osmolality values between 140 and 270 mOsm/kg have been recorded (7,10,21). Recently, the volume and distribution of the intestinal fluid in the gut have been discussed. Using magnetic resonance imaging it has been shown that volume of intestinal fluid in fasted persons is highly variable, ranging from 45 to 320 mL (24), comparable with postmortem fluid volumes of about 60 to 350 mL (25).
