This chapter will review the current status of probiotics in the area of human health and nutrition, including some reference of the use of probiotics in foods. The development of new strains of bacteria that can either improve current medical use or be used for medical problems in which probiotics have not been previously considered applicable or effective will be discussed. In this regard a review of both selective procedures and bio engineering techniques will be discussed.
