Probiotic Dairy Products: Inventions Toward Ultramodern Production

Part of the Food Microbiology and Food Safety book series (FMFS)


Application of the latest approaches and protocols in probiotic research has resulted in significant advances over the last decade. These refer almost exclusively to the design of probiotic dairy products, mainly through the design of the probiotic culture incorporated. Several protocols have been developed for the assessment of probiotic potential through omic approaches, and many more are currently under development. In addition, through the improvement of our knowledge regarding the mechanisms that lead to infections and disorders, the genetic engineering of probiotic strains aiming at the delivery of bioactive molecules to specific cites was made possible. All these indicate that we are entering an exciting new era with great expectations.
