ISAPP Newsletter – November 19, 2020

Did you know ISAPP was founded in 2002 as a non-profit public service organization with an all-academic voting board of directors, and with funding and logistical support from industry scientists? After 18 years, this ‘think tank’ of scientists across academia and industry is still going strong! We’re proud of our community and the ways in which we show global leadership in probiotic and prebiotic science.

This month's newsletter offers an article summarizing the latest research on probiotics for prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis. Also, Prof. Seppo Salminen shares about a project that supports the production and distribution of homemade yogurt in Nigerian communities; Lastly, Prof. Gabriel Vinderola provides an update on the harmonized guidelines for probiotics currently under discussion by Codex Alimentarius.

We also highlight two popular ISAPP resources: our infographic on synbiotics and our video covering the topic “Are all probiotics the same?” Take a look at all of the ISAPP infographics and videos -- more resources are under development, so stay tuned!

Update on harmonized guidelines for probiotics being developed by the Codex Alimentarius

ISAPP's educational infographic on synbiotics

ISAPP’s scientific consensus definition of synbiotics was published earlier this year – adding nuance to the concept of a synbiotic as ‘a probiotic plus a prebiotic’. Check out our infographic for a summary of this complex scientific concept.
