A great deal of research has been done on probiotic microorganisms. However, only a fraction of the potential of probiotics to enhance human health has been explored. This is because microbial metabolism is a complex field of study and it is difficult to understand all the existing correlations between microorganisms and humans. Moreover, the concept behind the term “probiotic” is evolving, and more microorganisms, together with the traditional probiotics, are the subject of new investigations to better understand the role of microbial metabolism in human health. This is the field of the next-generation probiotics, usually indicated as NGPs. Furthermore, a new field related to probiotics has recently been proposed—namely, postbiotics, in which the metabolism of probiotics, even though outside of the host, is of primary interest. In this scenario, any investigation on the metabolism of probiotics, directly or indirectly finalized to the enhancement of human health, is welcome in this Special Issue.
