Probiotic Food: How to Overcome Industry challenges

Consumers today expect additional benefits beyond basic nutritional supplements in their food. Something that stands out as a special type of matrix to facilitate probiotic health benefits. But to deliver the optimal final product with a probiotic effect is a tough slog.

Exhaustive efforts have been made to redesign dairy as well as non- dairy-based food to ensure optimal sensory properties and probiotic effects. However, there persist challenges that need to be addressed. The most significant challenge remains the Probiotic viability, functionality, and stability for the inclusion of probiotics into the food matrix.

Many companies have launched products that overcome some of these challenges- protecting the microorganisms through encapsulation techniques using different protectants, and improving the processing and storage conditions. Stony fields, Good culture, GoodBelly, Nancy’s, Chobani are a few to name.

Not just that, even the top food and beverage companies like Danone, Nestle, and Yakult have set up R&D organizations in various countries focusing their research on nutrition and the human gut microbiome.

There’s no doubt that in the Post-COVID-19 era consumers will focus much more on preventative health and will pay more attention to healthy nutrition. Thus giving a boost to the probiotic food industry. This is why it is important to keep track of the current trends and challenges in food probiotics and the potential of using probiotics in food products.
