The 4th Probdemo Demonstration Workshop, February 25-28, 2000, highlights the final results from the EU Demonstration Program Demonstration of Nutritional Functionality of Probiotic Foods (CT96-1028). As well, it provides insights to the starting projects in the 5th Framework Program within the topic Health and Food. The scientific basis for newly developed, functionally enhanced foods will be communicated through oral and poster presentations from the scientific disciplines involved in intestinal management functional food development. The Workshop enhances the exchange of information between scientists and industry, providing results from global perspectives on new value-added, and nutritionally improved food products, and underlining the needs of consumers. The demonstration emphasis will be on the real clinical value of probiotic products for both children and adults, and both for healthy and diseased consumers. The highlights will focus on the gastrointestinal balance and GI-diseases for adults as well as immune enhancement of the host and preventive treatment for allergic diseases in children. All these are followed by a panel of reliable tools for probiotic strain assessment as well as their production in industrial scale. In addition to the Probdemo endresults, new perspectives on functional food technology, process design, and prebiotics and synbiotics will be addressed. Finally, future perspectives will be presented on novel clinical approaches as well as innovations in research on health design microbes.
