Probiotics and prebiotics are being used for many years as alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters in pigs and poultry. A lot of research has been performed more on probiotics and much less in prebiotics with the purpose to define their effects on both animals and human and to clear their mechanisms of interactions with the body. This chapter will be focused on the practical applications of probiotics and prebiotics in pigs, with reference to some possible mechanisms.
