Virtual Issue - Probiotic Dairy Products

Probiotics are an important component of many functional foods and dairy products are ideal vehicles for their assimilation into a healthy diet.  International Journal of Dairy Technology regularly publishes reviews and original research on the topic of Probiotics and this selection will provide an introduction to the wealth of information contained within the journal.  The selection includes a review, an earlier paper setting some basic principles in the development of functional foods with probiotic content, five papers on probiotics in yoghurt, cheese and desserts, and two papers concerned with biochemical and physiological aspects of probiotics.
