In Probiotics, Prebiotics and Synbiotics: Technological Advancements Towards Safety and Industrial Applications, a team of distinguished researchers delivers an insightful exploration of various aspects of functional foods. The book includes information about critical facets of the production of these beneficial compounds, recent technological developments in the field, and their present and future commercial potential. The authors describe their mechanisms of action and their applications in several sectors.
Probiotics, Prebiotics and Synbiotics is divided into five parts. A general introduction about these substances begins the book and is followed by discussions of common probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics. Finally, a treatment of safety issues and regulatory claims, as well as their market potential, rounds out the resource.
Perfect for researchers, industry practitioners, and students working in or studying food processing and food microbiology, Probiotics, Prebiotics and Synbiotics is also an invaluable resource for professionals working in the field of food biotechnology.
