Science has progressed fast in providing answers to probiotic health benefits to the consumers. This symposium also proves that progress is fast. However, several challenges still need to be solved and more effective strains and strain combinations discovered. This will pave the way from good probiotics to specific products for clearly identified target populations. The intestinal microbiota and its interaction(s) with probiotics challenges researchers to turn to the next new page to discover new approaches and treatment modalities that utilize probiotics as means of providing good nutrition with clear health benefits to all consumers.
