Probiotics, Prebiotics and the Gut Microbiota

ILSI Europe Concise Monograph. 2013:1-32

Facing the recent published data on pre- and probiotics and their impact on health, the Prebiotics Task Force decided to join forces with the Probiotics Task Force to commission a Concise Monograph. The aim is to provide the reader with a single document compiling both probiotic and prebiotic concepts and discuss the function of the intestinal microbiota. The monograph also answers to questions on complementary health benefits associated with consumption of prebiotics and probiotics considering the body of available science.
