[This document has been captured as part of the JMID-section for Grey- literature. Grey (or gray) literature refers to informally published written material that may be difficult to trace via conventional databases and/or journals as it is not formally published or is not widely accessible. However, Grey literature may still be an important source of information. Examples of grey literature include e.g.: patents, reports, working documents or unpublished manuscripts]

The systematic literature search identified 3 articles in compliance with the broad inclusion criteria. Of these, 1 articles was rejected due to insufficient internal validity. Meta-analysis was not conducted. In the accepted trial a significantly lower buffer capacity was observed in association with high energy intake in diet, low intake of fibres in diet and chronic protein-energy malnutrition. However, no causal relationship could be found. The results of both accepted and rejected trial were consistent with each other in regard to the association of buffer capacity and fibre intake. Further well designed trials are needed. It is recommended that reporting of such studies should follow the CONSORT and STROBE statement.
