What is the relationship of prebiotics to my baby’s gut flora?

Prebiotics possess 2 important characteristics:

  • The fibre must pass through the gastrointestinal tract undigested
  • They must stimulate the growth and/or activity of certain ‘good’ bacteria, called probiotics, in the large intestine

Most prebiotics are dietary fibre.
