The sum is greater than the parts: The future success of the gut health market depends on combining pre- and probiotics, according to a NutraIngredients-USA poll.

Last week we asked you, our readers, to decide if prebiotics would ever eclipse probiotics in the gut health segment, and gave you four options: Yes - prebiotics potentially offer more benefits; No - probiotics are firmly ahead in the consumers' mind; Synbiotics (a mix of pre- and probiotics) are the way to go; Who cares? Regulators will stifle progress in both!

As our chart below shows, of the 77 people who voted, 52.6 percent said that synbiotics are the way to go forward in the market, while 31.6 percent thought that prebiotics would eclipse probiotics because they offer potentially more benefits.
