Book Preface

The development and application of probiotics in the past was oriented toward pharmaceuticals or limited to traditional probiotic foods such as yoghurt. However, these days application of probiotics has been extended to novel functional foods that are targeted at the general population. We both have been working at the Technische Universität München together for a decade in the fi eld of fermentation and drying technology of probiotics and are convinced that these fi elds of research are very vital and will increase in the future along with this trend. Novel probiotic foods require, for example, novel probiotic strains, appropriate cultivation process, and effi cient preservation methods that fi t to the new food matrices or food production processes. Despite the availability of huge amount of scientifi c literature related to health benefi ts, little effort has been made to put together insight related to these technological and biotechnical aspects of probiotics. This is why the book “Advances in Probiotic Technology” was initiated by us.

The aim of this book is to attract and engage key experts in the fi eld of probiotic technology to assemble the latest advances and trends in technology and biotechnology of probiotics into a book. The focus of this book is to present the state of-the art technology for isolation and characterisation of probiotics as well as the production process of probiotic cell concentrate including fermentation, freezing and drying, storage and microencapsulation. A part of the book is dedicated to the use of probiotics in different food products. We are convinced that the probiotic technology is still in its infancy and will become more important in future when the role of microorganisms in the gut is better understood and specifi c probiotic effects of individual strains are elucidated.

The book comprises 18 chapters, that are divided in four parts. The chapters are arranged in such a way that it resembles the probiotic production process, i.e., starting from upstream to downstream processing, and ending with today’s application of probiotics in food matrices.
