Basically, an ML model trained with many factors - including microbiome composition - is more predictive of post-food glucose response than the current nutrition-based methods (carbs and/or calories) alone. At least based on the limited studies so far, this seems the case for non-diabetics, pre-diabetics, and diabetics. More on the ML model: https://genie.weizmann.ac.il/pubs/2015_david_2.pdf
