Abstract:

In the following study two LAB cultures were isolated from curd and pickle. The various morphological and biochemical tests were performed. The proximate analysis of Psyllium husk was done followed by assessing of psyllium husk as prebiotics. Psyllium husk was incorporated into Buttermilk and studied the effect of psyllium in the prepared dairy product. Several papers were reviewed to find out psyllium husk role in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
