Orange Juice Shows Better Potential As A Nondairy Probiotic Carrier

July 1, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Most probiotic foods on the market today are dairy-based, but demand is increasing for nondairy probiotic carriers such as fruit and vegetable juices. With that in mind, Australian scientists report that orange juice is a better carrier of the probiotic strain L. sanfranciscensis than apple or tomato juice because it survives longer in refrigerated storage. But most importantly, it better weathers the acidic environment of the human gut. All three juices met the recommended cold storage viability level, with orange juice the most effective. But in a simulated gastric environment, “the lowest reduction of viability was noted in orange juice, followed by tomato juice,” indicating that “orange juice had a better protective effect than other juices on L. sanfranciscensis against simulated intestinal juice digestion.” L. sanfranciscensis has been shown to be beneficial because of its anti‐inflammatory effects and potential to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).[Image Credit: © Myriam Zilles from Pixabay]
