GPA focuses on building awareness of prebiotics globally. Prebiotics play an important role in the human microbiome: their role is to support & feed, increase & produce and balance & optimize. GPA defines a prebiotic as “a product or ingredient that is utilized in the microbiota producing a health or performance benefit. Further, it uniquely defines a prebiotic effect as “a health or performance benefit that arises from alteration of the composition and/or activity of the microbiota, as a direct or indirect result of the utilization of a specific and well defined product or ingredient by microorganisms”.
