#' @title Report the fold change of fluxes between two models
#' @description This functions calculates the fold change \code{"(fluxModel2/fluxModel1)-1"} for the fluxes of two given metabolic models.
#' @param model1 A valid model for the \code{'sybil'} package.
#' @param model2 A valid model for the \code{'sybil'} package. Must have the same reactions (reaction number and reaction identifiers) as \code{"model1"} with different restrictions.
#' @param foldReport A threshold value to be reported. All reactions with a greater or equal fold change than the given threshold are reported.
