Probiotic foods are the leading components of functional food sector. Probiotic organisms are known for their several health beneficial abilities. Fermented dairy products are the most preferred traditional matrix for probiotic, but increasingly, other products are being used as the probiotics delivery vehicle. Composite foods are the relatively uncommon matrix for probiotic. Combination of milk and cereal can provide better nutrition to mankind with higher growth of the probiotic organism. Composite probiotic products may lead to product diversification with improved nutrition at a lower cost.
