One Third of Probiotics, "Good Bacteria" Products Like Acidophilus, Found to be Worthless

Having studied 55 products labeled "probiotic," Belgian biologists conclude that in fact, not every product that claims to be "probiotic" actually contains the bacteria associated with this claim. In addition, in many cases the researchers found bacteria other than those named on the label.

"Probiotic" refers to foods that contain certain bacteria, which are said to have beneficial effects on colon flora and the immune system.

The researchers studied the micro-flora of 25 dairy products and 30 powdered products that are used as nutritional supplements. More than a third of the powdered products contained no living bacteria whatsoever - unlike the dairy products, which contained up to a billion living microorganisms per milliliter.

In identifying the bacteria, they found that only thirteen percent of the products contained all bacteria types included on the label.

Meanwhile, in one third of all the products, the researchers found other bacteria not listed on the label. However, these could be classified as harmless. The researchers criticize that the packaging often features incorrect, but nice-sounding bacteria names. They say that in the interest of the consumer, it is necessary to have label the products correctly.

This research will be published later this year in the International Journal of Food Microbiology.

Good Bacteria May Disguise Themselves in Your Body

Trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms are known to dwell happily in the human body. But exactly how they are able to live their days in obscurity, unbothered by the immune system, is unknown. Now scientists have some clues.

In experiments with the intestinal bacteria known as Bacteroides fragilis, the researchers found that gut flora may be able to change their surfaces to avoid detection by the immune system.

The bacteria produce at least eight different sugars, or polysaccharides, on their surfaces. And this shift of outerwear could perhaps act as a disguise.

These eight distinct polysaccharides are the most yet seen on any type of bacteria.

Exactly how the immune system normally reacts to the body's population of microorganisms, or flora, is unclear. In fact, the whole area is a "huge black box."

Clearly, these flora do good things, such as competing with invading microbes that cause disease. But they can occasionally get involved in the disease process. For instance, if there is an injury to the intestines that causes flora to leak they can cause infection.

It is possible that if the immune system were primed to attack Bacteroides organisms with a particular polysaccharide, the microbes could put on a different surface sugar to allude detection.

The organisms are obviously quite good at staying alive since they withstand invading germs, bacteria-killing antibiotics and various "environmental" shifts such as dietary changes. This study suggests that an occasional change of wardrobe is one way they do it.
