Title: The nature and manufacturing of Probiotics/Prebiotics for gastrointestinal health


Biography: Osama Ibrahim


Probiotics are live bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria that are beneficial for gastrointestinal health. These probiotics bacteria intended to be colonized in the large intestine (colon) and reduce the effect of harmful and pathogenic bacteria in the digestive system, suggesting that these probiotics bacteria can prevent gastrointestinal tract from infection diseases and reduce colon inflammation. It is also assumed that probiotics bacteria strengthen the immune system. Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates by digestive enzymes in small intestine and are fermentable when reached the clone. This fermentation process of prebiotics enhances the growth of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in the colon. There are two categories of prebiotics: Prebiotics fibers that are naturally occurred in whole grain, broccoli, asparagus, radish, cabbage, etc. and prebiotics oligosaccharides such as Fracto-Oligosaccharide (FOX), Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS), Xylo-Oligisaccharides (XOS), etc. These prebiotics oligosaccharides are manufactured enzymatically from plant sources. Synbiotics concept was first introduced as a mixture of probiotics and prebiotics that beneficially affect the gastrointestinal tract of the host (human or animals). This synbiotic formulation that contains both probiotics and prebiotics are manufactured by using microencapsulation technology and are marketed in the form of capsules or tablets. Manufacturing of probiotics/prebiotics and the impact of this synbiotics relationship on colon health will be highlighted.
