What are probiotics?
Probiotics are “live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health beneﬁt on the host, beyond the common nutritional effects” (FAO/WHO, 2001). They facilitate fiber digestion, boost the immune system and prevent or treat diarrhea. Today, dozens of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli are marketed in certain foods such as yogurts or fermented milk products.
