Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2024 | Viewed by 4863
We are thrilled to announce the publication of a Special Issue titled "Functional Properties of Food Source Probiotics" in the journal Foods. Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide numerous health benefits to the host when consumed in adequate amounts. Food sources such as dairy, fermented foods, and fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of probiotics. This Special Issue explores the potential advantages of consuming probiotics obtained from food sources and how they can enhance gut health, modulate the immune response and exercise performance, and prevent extraintestinal disorders, including metabolic disorders, hyperuricemia, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and neuronal diseases. The articles in this issue offer an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of probiotics and their potential applications in preventing and treating various illnesses. We are confident that the insights shared in this Special Issue emphasize the significance of probiotics in food sources and further encourage research development in this area.
