The field of fermented food and probiotics is increasingly becoming important, not only to consumers due to the potential health benefits of probiotic bacteria, but to researchers and food processors as well who are looking for most effective and safe bacterial strains and modes of delivery in order to be effectively utilized by the human gut.
Our goal is to publish original papers to contribute to the knowledge of fermented foods, probiotics, and prebiotics as related to health maintenance, disease prevention, fermentation processes, safety issues, bacterial selection criteria, mechanisms of actions, beneficial effects, validation studies, etc.
Prof. Dr. Felix Barron
