Updated: Nov 17, 2019

Snack time just got exciting with these PROBIOTIC & PREBIOTIC frozen bars. They are so easy to make and your tummy will love all the gut friendly ingredients.



PROBIOTICS & PREBIOTICS

Let me just revise these two terms that people often mix up.

We have been hearing them a lot especially with the growing interested in the gut health.


The term PROBIOTIC can be used to describe microorganisms that have the potential to provide beneficial health effects to the host. (1) Generally it is done by improving or restoring the gut microbiome.

Probiotics are the friendly bacterias found in fermented food such as yogurt, kombucha or pickled vegetables. There is also a huge amounts of probiotic suplemments on the market.


Dietary PREBIOTICS are typically nondigestible fiber compounds that pass through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and stimulate the growth or activity of advantageous bacteria that colonize the large bowl by acting as substrate for them.(2)

Easily said prebiotics are the food for the good bacterias in our gut.
