Abstract:

Food is the basic necessity of mankind. Human gastrointestinal tract resident microflora contains good bacteria that extend therapeutic benefits which are termed as Probiotics. The use of probiotics, prebiotics that stimulates probiotics and synbiotics which is a combination of pro and prebiotics improve the gut homeostasis, has been blooming for the past decade. Recent work on relevant probiotic strains has also led to the isolation and characterisation of certain probiotic derived metabolites called as postbiotics. The different forms of postbiotics include peptidoglycans; exopolysaccharides; organic acids or short-chain fatty acids, peptide molecules; and bacteriocins. These have favourable absorption, metabolism and distribution abilities which could indicate a high capacity to signal different organs and tissues in the host thus eliciting several biological responses. The incorporation of live probiotic bacteria in foods is dependent on propagation, processing steps, viability, survival number, colonization and so on. To overcome these problems their metabolites may be a good alternative to probiotics. In contrast, postbiotics are supposed to be more stable than the probiotics allowing their application in a wide variety of functional food products.
