Probiotics are living bacteria that offer health benefits to their hosts. Probiotic strains can be isolated from human milk as well as formula milk. Human breast milk provides the nutrients that a newborn requires for growth and development. For healthy newborn babies whose mothers are unable to provide adequate breast milk, infant formulation is the best alternative. The microflora in human breast milk, which includes helpful lactic acid bacteria, is one of the reasons for its benefits. So the study's aim was to compare mother milk with formula milk to check the quality with respect to colony formulation by Lactic acid bacteria (LAB).
