Prebiotic Ingredients Market : Pin-Point Analysis For Changing Competitive Dynamics

Difference between prebiotics and probiotics

Prebiotics are the food source for many good bacteria living in the human gut. These bacteria help in digestion and also in maintaining the overall health of human beings. Prebiotics are thus necessary for gut bacteria to flourish and multiply so that they can be present in good numbers to enable better health.

Probiotics on the other hand are essentially live bacteria that are introduced into the human gut to increase the number of good bacteria and help in digestion. The most challenging part of incorporating probiotics into human diet is to keep the bacteria alive until it can reach the gut and this complicates the incorporation process. As prebiotics do not have live bacteria and are based on food ingredients, they can be easily introduced into various functional foods and beverages for direct consumption without special storage requirements.
