Functional Food & Beverages
Today an increase in knowledge of functional foods and beverages has led to develop foods and drinks with health benefits beyond adequate nutrition. The presence of probiotics in commercial food products and beverages has been claimed for certain health benefits. This has led to industries focusing on different applications of probiotics in food products and creating a new generation of ‘probiotic health’ foods and drinks.
Healthy people should be the first to take probiotics, because it makes their general health better and defends them from diverse kinds of illnesses. Probiotics display numerous health benefits beyond providing basic nutritional value. These evidences have been established by scientific testing and clinical trials in humans or animals.
Probiotics applications have been extended from human applications to diversity of agricultural application. Agricultural applications include animal feed developing fortified feed with intestinal microbiota to benefit the animals, in plants probiotics products can be used as biofertilizers, plant strengtheners, phytostimulators, and biopesticides.
Probiotics in cosmetics is one of the fast growing categories in skincare. As further studies and clinical trials comes to light, findings raise many new and important questions about the interactions between host and microbes and its relevance and importance to healthy skin microbiome. When skin dysbiosis occurs as a result of skin disorders, probiotics can act as modulators, restoring microbial balance.
The growth of aquaculture as an industry has accelerated over the past decades; this has increased the need for disease resistance, growth of aquatic organisms, and feed efficiency has brought about the use of probiotics in aquaculture practices. The interest in probiotics as an environmentally friendly alternative is increasing and its application is both empirical and scientific.
Just as beneficial bacteria is extremely important to humans so it is also a vital element for pets. It can benefit pets in a variety of ways, and can help rid the host of invading pathogens and help sooth an overactive immune system. Beneficial bacteria are considered to be essential for good overall pet health and among many other health benefits can also help restore and improve intestinal balance.
