Abstract: This chapter provides a comprehensive review of probiotics and prebiotics in dairy products. After an overview on the evolution, the health benefits and the most important probiotic strains, it emphasizes the fundamental principles for the evaluation and assessment of probiotics. Understanding the probiotic mechanism, the probiotic strain selection and the maintenance of probiotic viability were identified as the major challenges. Consumer perception and acceptance are important factors in the successful marketing of functional foods. A brief overview on prebiotics shows their beneficial impact on probiotics. Various microencapsulation methods and materials are discussed as adequate opportunities to enhance the viability of probiotics. The overview of the world market of functional food products shows a broad variety of probiotic dairy products.
