Probiotic Novel Beverages and Their Applications

Tiwari R, Tiwari G, Rai AK.


Natural substances are generally preferred over chemical ones and are generally considered as
healthy. The increasing demand for natural ingredients, improving health and appearance, is also
attracting beverages as the fastest growing segment on the functional food market. Functional
beverages are launched as fortified water, tea, diary or juices, claiming overall nutrition, energy,
anti-aging or relaxing effects. The substitution of so-called superfruits, such as berries, grapes, or
pomegranate, delivers an effective range of beneficial compounds including vitamins, fatty acids,
minerals, and antioxidants. In this context, new exotic and African fruits could be useful sources
in the near future. Teas and green botanicals, such as algae or aloe vera, are also rich in effective
bioactives and have been used traditionally. The botanical kingdom offers endless possibilities.
