The realm of probiotics: An overview

Sai Priya T and Ghadevaru Sarathchandra
Probiotics are living bacterial colonies that are incredibly beneficial to human health and are available from various sources. The sources of these probiotics were initially assumed to be of dairy origin, but various studies have elucidated the possibilities of isolation from various sources beyond that. Recent research has shown that probiotics can be isolated from unconventional sources like non dairy food wastes, which could decrease the global food waste rate, promote valorisation, and minimizes dairy consumption in lactose-intolerant individuals. This kind of probiotic generation would be much more beneficial and embraced when the government explicates stringent regulatory measures to illuminate its safety, efficacy and viability to encounter the pseudo-probiotic generation in the commercial market. The realm of probiotics has been deeply researched and has led to various advancements like pharmabiotics, postbiotics and even next-generation probiotics. The appropriate selection of probiotics and their effective delivery still remains a technological challenge. The aim of this current review is to summarize the magnitude and strategies used throughout the recent advancements in probiotics' revolution in the food and health sector.
