Abstract

Probiotics are non-pathogenic microorganisms mostly of human origin which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host and are able to prevent or improve some diseases (Fric, 2007). Following recommendations of a FAO/WHO working group on the evaluation of probiotics in food (2002), the suggested definition of probiotics is ‘live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host’.
