Prebiotics: the concept revisited.
TLDR
A prebiotic is a selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon host well-being and health and the "dose argument" is not supported by the scientific data: it is misleading for consumers and should not be allowed.
