Abstract

; Probiotic is a relatively new word meaning 'for life', which is used to name microorganisms that are associated with the beneficial effects for humans and animals. These microorganisms contribute to intestinal microbial balance and play a role in maintaining health. The probiotic microorganisms consist mostly of the strains of the genera Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, but strains of Bacillus, Pediococcus and some yeasts have also been found as suitable candidates. Together they play an important role in the protection of the organism against harmful microorganisms and also strengthen the host's immune system. Probiotics can be found in dairy and non-dairy products. They are usually consumed after the antibiotic therapy (for some illnesses), which destroys the microbial flora present in the digestive tract (both the useful and the targeted harmful microbes). Regular consumption of food containing probiotic microorganisms is recommended to establish a positive balance of the population of useful or beneficial microbes in the intestinal flora. The global market of probiotic ingredients, supplements and food was worth $14.9 billion in 2007 and it was expected to reach 15.9 billion in 2008, and 19.6 billion in 2013, representing a compound annual growth rate of 4.3 %. Extensive investigations of probiotics have been greatly enhanced by the research of new microbes for future probiotic bacteriotherapy applications.
