Bacteria plays a major role in building immunity among people
The most widely consumed bacteria strains are Lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria, and Streptococcus Thermophilusthermophilus, among others (Enterococcus, Bacillus, and Pediococcus). The primary benefit of incorporating scientifically derived bacterial strains in probiotic foods is the balance in the host’s intestinal microbiota and the subsequent enhancement of the immune system. The other advantages include balancing the pH of the large intestine, cholesterol reduction, prevention of diseases, treatment of tooth decay, and improvement in women’s health.
The probiotics food & cosmetics segment, by product type is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period.
Probiotics are categorized as foods & beverages based on their intended uses and benefits, which, in turn, depends on probiotic microbes. The products under this category include foods & beverages that offer distinct health benefits beyond fundamental nutrition due to their specific ingredients. Probiotic ingredients are incorporated in a wide range of food & beverage applications such as dairy products, non-dairy beverages, cereals, and infant formula. The increasing consumer awareness related to probiotics is gradually gaining pace, which is expected to drive the investments in R&D for developing new products that contain probiotic ingredients.
