Abstract

The beneficial effects of probiotic, prebiotic, and synbiotic on human health are increasingly expanding their claim. Concurrently with the selection and characterization of microorganisms is selected and characterized their for probiotic features, at the same time there is a growing interest to individuate and study novel prebiotic compounds aiming to develop novel synbiotic formulations which hold health-promoting properties. In the view of what has been earlier reported, this work includes a comprehensive overview of β-glucans compounds that are currently the focus of numerous research studies due to their attractive biological activity and prebiotic characteristics.
