ISAPP Newsletter – February 2021
Did you know that ISAPP was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2002? That makes next year the organization’s 20th anniversary. Board members are already planning special activities and a celebration for 2022, so stay tuned!
This newsletter starts with a blog post by ISAPP board member Dr. Eamonn Quigley, which gives an up-to-date summary of what gut microbiota has to do with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The next blog post looks ahead to the future of pro- and prebiotic science, highlighting the main points from a recently published review paper that emerged from a 2019 ISAPP discussion group.
For a humorous diversion, read a blog post that describes how two ISAPP board members answered a rather surprising challenge put to scientists by Benjamin Franklin 240 years ago.
Our featured video this month is on “How to choose a probiotic” -- with guidelines for consumers on how to pick a suitable probiotic from the wide array of different products they encounter on store shelves.
