Abstract

The workshop is the second in a series of four workshops for the FAIR Demonstration project entitled Demonstration of the Nutritional Functionality of Probiotic Foods, Probdemo, FAIR CT96-1028. The aim is to substantiate the real value of probiotic products to the EU markets and to EU consumers by providing a sound basis for assessing the functionality of novel probiotic foods. The project enables the industry to demonstrate the health claims for probiotic products on children and adults with regard to management of intestinal disorders and immune enhancement. The workshops and newsletters and other publications are considered to be of utmost importance for the dissemination of project results since the main purpose of the programme is demonstration. The dissemination will thus be established by annual workshops and newsletters. Workshop 1 was held on the Selection and Safety Criteria of Probiotics in Helsinki, Finland November 1996. Workshop 2 is being held in Cork, Ireland October 1997 entitled Novel Methods for Probiotic Research. Workshop 3 will be held in Haikko, Finland October 1998. The aim of workshop 3 is to have a joint programme with other EU project groups involved with functional foods. Newsletter 1 and 2 has been established, the first one being on the Probdemo group and its objectives, the second one being on the Safety of probiotics.
