What is a postbiotic? ISAPP’s video to find out more

ISAPP (International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics) is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting research into probiotics and prebiotics. It supports research in both these fields and has recently focused its efforts on a new family of biotics: postbiotics. But what is a postbiotic? This term was only defined by ISAPP in 2021, in a field that is still being explored.

What is a postbiotic?

The definition

The official definition given by ISAPP is: “a preparation of inanimate microorganisms and/or their components that confers a health benefit on the host“. A solid definition but not so easy to understand when you are neither a biologist nor an expert in human health. That is why ISAPP has produced an educational video to help you find out more.

What is a postbiotic: the ISAPP video

ISAPP’s overall mission is to help the general public understand biotics and their applications in addition to its two other missions: supporting researchers and communicating scientific progress in the microbiota sphere. As part of this educational role, ISAPP has designed a video to answer all your questions simply and effectively:

  • What is a postbiotic?
  • What are the different biotics?
  • What are the issues and effects on health?
  • How are they obtained and for what purpose of application?
