AbstractThe beneficial effects of probiotic and prebiotic foods as natural ways of suppressing pathogens are discussed. The belief in the beneficial effects of the probiotic approach is based on the knowledge that the intestinal microflora provides protection against various diseases. Probiotic foods contain live microorganisms, which actively enhance health of consumers by improving the balance of microflora in the gut when ingested live in sufficient numbers. It is observed that the combination of prebiotics along with probiotic bacteria to modify gastrointestinal flora have the potential to provide a complete food for maximum health benefits.
