Usefulness of Probiotic-Enriched Milk and Milk-Based Products

A potential dietary strategy to prevent obesity and metabolic syndrome was developed with the aim of intestinal microbiota using testiotics. Cultivated dairy products can be used for delivering probiotics to the gut as well as to promote probiotic bacteria's development and survival. In the last decade, the gut microbiota has become a major driver of metabolic syndrome and obesity via an increasing array of data. Multiple variables in the genetic and environmental makeup of the gut microbiota are regulated, including the key contributive component in diet. Diet surgerys such as probiotic supplements may help to manipulate the gut microbiota as a potential approach to prevent and cure metabolic syndrome and obesity. Diet supplements or food sources, particularly dairy products such as yoghurt or kefir, can provide probiotic bacteria to the intestine. Global consumption of milk and milk products exceed 6 billion people. In Europe, Oceania and the Americas, milk supplies 11% to 14% of the food supply. Due to the inverse relationship between milk product consumption and the risk of metabolic syndrome and, possibly, obese usage, milk-related consumption was noted in recent research. Due to the strong buffering capacity of milk proteins, which can preserve bacterial cells during gastric transit, cheese is an appropriate matrix for transporting the probiotic bacteria into the gastrointestinal system. The acidic bacteria are protected by the food matrices with the high-fat content and thick structure (as found in cheeses).
