Competing Interests

I have read the journal's policy and the authors of this manuscript have the following competing interests: we declare that Jeremy Ranfaing obtained a PhD fellowship from Nutrivercell. This grant corresponds to a « Bourse CIFRE », a co-funding of academic PhD (half by the University and half by the company). However in this type of grant, all the results obtained during the PhD course belongs to INSERM and University of Montpellier. Nutrivercell had/has no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript. This grant does not alter our adherence to PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials. The other authors had no financial competing interests with Nutrivercell or other commercial funder.
