Application of probiotics

The probiotic market is a growing sector: “The sales of “small bottles” of probiotic have increased in more than 50% with reference to last year” (Euromonitor). This is due to the increased familiarisation of these products among consumers, and the authorities have started to implement standards and guidelines that seek the correct promotion of these products.

In the consumer sector, the area where probiotic products are most sought is the dairy one, where the probiotic cultures are applied successfully.

However, nowadays the global trend in the animal food industry is focused on the elimination of all type of protective substances, antibiotics, chemotherapeutic or growth accelerators. Since January 1 2006, The EU has prohibited the use of antibiotics that stimulate the growth with a residual effect, this has generated the substitution of these substances for probiotic, that improves the intestinal balance of animals and allow growth and improvement in animal production in a natural way.
