About this Reference Work

Prebiotic and Probiotic Science and Technology provides a comprehensive overview on the advances in the field of prebiotics and probiotics. This volume presents the science underpinning the probiotic and prebiotic effects, the latest in vivo studies, the technological issues in the development and manufacture of these types of products, and the regulatory issues involved. It is structured so that it covers all aspects of the topics in a logical manner, avoiding replication. This book will be a useful reference for both scientists and technologists working in academic and governmental institutes, and the industry.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The first volume starts with general contributions on the use of pre- and probiotics to manage the gastrointestinal tract ecosystem and the molecular tools that are available nowadays to monitor changes within the microbial ecology of the gut, whether those changes are inflicted by pre- and probiotics … . Volume 2 opens with the ecological interaction of bacteria within the human colon. … Overall, this is a very extensive survey of the current knowledge on science and technology of probiotics and prebiotics.” (K. Venema, Beneficial Microbes, Vol. 1 (3), September, 2010)
