ISAPP Newsletter – November 18, 2019
ISAPP board members and collaborators have had a busy month, participating in various activities and working groups that serve to advance probiotic and prebiotic science globally.
In this newsletter, we bring you the latest on the discussions with Codex Alimentarius about global harmonization of probiotics. We highlight a blog post that tackles a misleading Wall Street Journal article about probiotics and gut health, and another with ISAPP’s measured response to a recent study on L. rhamnosus-associated bacteremia in hospitalized, critically ill patients.
In the next post, founding ISAPP board member Prof. Gregor Reid reflects on his upcoming retirement and, using words of wisdom from his favorite musical groups, reflects on how far probiotic science has come and where he sees it going.
ISAPP now has a website page dedicated to consumer frequently asked questions (FAQs)! Read about it below—and feel free to email us with additional questions you’d like to see our science translation committee to address on this new page.
