Handbook of Prebiotics and Probiotics Ingredients: Health Benefits and Food Applications
Edited by Susan Sungsoo Cho, Terry Finocchiaro
While there is little dispute that probiotics and prebiotics, alone and together, have been proven to promote
gastrointestinal health and proper immune function, the challenge faced by researchers is finding not only
the right combinations, but also finding those that are fully compatible with the formulation, processing,
packaging, and distribution of functional foods. This book comprehensively explores these variables and highlights
the most current biological research and food applications.

In this volume, a team of experts offers insight into the many facets of these products, describing
the prebiotic, probiotic, and synbiotic applications in use today as well as those currently being
studied. The book first examines the sources of prebiotics and probiotics and then describes the
physiological functions of both products. The contributors discuss promising applications for
a plethora of disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, pediatric diarrhea, cancer,
and various chronic diseases.
