Access from EThOS:
One important development which has recently started to be incorporated to the group of functional foods, is that of the synbiotics (combination of probiotics with prebiotics). This study focused on the development of synbiotic versions of three potential probiotic strains (Lactobacillus acidophilus 74-2, Lactobacillus casei 163 and Bifidobacterium lactis 420) with potential prebiotics and their antipathogenic effects were also investigated. The probiotic characteristics of each of the three strains were assessed prior to investigation of potential synbiotic combinations.
