Prebiotic ingredients have moved to function 2.0 by serving a dual purpose of feeding beneficial probiotics in guts as well as offering other health benefits, such as cognitive or anti-inflammatory health. Prebiotics’ emerging popularity is among the trends noted by Karen Butler, senior editor, Natural Products INSIDER, at the 2018 SupplySide West show in Las Vegas. In this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, Butler also discusses:

  • New research on polyphenol that shows their prebiotic and antioxidative effects

  • Ingredient and finished product companies finding and using functional ingredients from previous waste components

  • Brands’ increasing efforts to listen and conform to consumer demands for functional, healthy products with clean labels and sustainable sourcing practices.
