PROBIOTICS - The Pioneer in Food Biotechnology

  1. 1. PROBIOTICSThe Pioneer in FoodBiotechnology
  2. 2. Probiotics concept“Probiotics are living microorganisms which upon ingestion insufficient numbers, exert health benefits beyond basicnutrition.”Intensive research area in the world……..
  3. 3. LactobacilliBifidobacteriumSaccharomyces boulardiiBacillus coagulansWhat types of organisms are used in probiotics ?
  4. 4. Grow in the presence of bile in the gut.Acid resistance.Adherence to host epithelial tissue.In vitro antagonism of pathogenic micro-organisms orthose suspected of promoting inflammation.Non-pathogenic. Be of human origin.Remain viable throughout the shelf-life of the product.Selection criteria for inclusion into probiotics
  5. 5. Managing Lactose Intolerance.Cholesterol Lowering.Lowering Blood Pressure.Improving Immune Function and Preventing Infections.Reducing Inflammation.Improving Mineral Absorption.Prevents Harmful Bacterial GrowthUnder Stress.Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Colitis.Medical conditions which probiotics have been demonstratedto alleviate
  6. 6. Improvements for survival of probioticsMicroencapsulation : Entrapment of micro-organisms with artificial/ biological membranes/supports/ coveringsPrebiotics : Addition of prebiotics such as inulin, fructo-oligosacchrides etc.Other food supplements : Addition of other food additives such as fibres, vitamins etc.Heat from pelleting and long storage of products may render the nonviability of the product. For improving the survival of probiotic culturesfollowing practices has been applied….
  7. 7. Mucosal cell liningProbiotic bacteriae.g. LactobacilliBacteriocin productionPathogenic Bacteriae.g. ClostridiumAdditional beneficial mechanism of probiotics
  8. 8. Purported mechanisms of actionBacteriocinBioactive peptidesShort chain fatty acidsNeutralization ofdietary carcinogensFree amino acidsOrganic acidsβ-Galactosidase activityOligosaccharidesCholesterol assimilationSurvival and adhesioncompetitions withpathogenic bacteriaAntioxidantImmunostimulatoryProbiotics
  9. 9. Current trends Anticarcinogenic: Colon, breast and others Antidiabetic Anti-allergic Anti-inflammatory Diseases: IBD, Ulcerative colitis, Crohndisease, Pouchitis and Post-operative complications Genetically modified probiotics Oral vaccine development
  10. 10. Eat Probiotics foods, live healthy lifeSo…..Eat the “good bugs” every day……….Invite them in………..
