Abstract: The recovery of Lb. acidophilus counts in human beings was studied by giving 100 g sample of dahi to each volunteer. When synbiotic dahi fed to human volunteers, Lactobacillus acidophilus strain V2 with prebiotics T1 (1 % Inulin) and T2 (1.5 % Inulin) have shown significantly increased trend in counts of Lactobacillus acidophilus as compared to other treatments. The maximum increment in count was observed for treatment T2V2 (1.5 % Inulin + strain V2). The count increased from 46.5 (zero day count) to 98.5 (seventh day count) i.e. net increase in count was 52 and for treatment T1V2 (1 % Inulin + strain V2) count increased from 12.5 (zero day count) to 55 (seventh day count) i.e. net increased in counts were 42.5. Prebiotic Inulin has shown the best results as compared to prebiotic raffinose.
