Tartary buckwheat is a kind of food and medicinal material and it contains abundant protein. Tartary buckwheat protein has the characteristics of indigestibility and other physiological activities The main purpose of this paper is research the prebiotic effects of protein extract of tartary buckwheat on probiotics in vivo experiments. Thus, the growth of probiotics in bile acids salts and the growth of probiotics in the presence of tartary buckwheat protein as well as the effect of tartary buckwheat protein on probiotics bile acid salts tolerance were carried out in this paper. The results showed that tartary buckwheat protein could promote the growth of L.casei LC2W and B.longum BD 400 and tartary buckwheat protein could increase the SC and SGC tolerance of L.casei LC2W and B.longum BD 400, thereby, increasing the growth rate of the above two strains of probiotics, and compared with the control group the OD values were increased by 77.51%, 73.95% and 70.95%, 70.37%. Thus it can be seen that tartary buckwheat protein may be used as a kind of growth factor for probiotics. This study provides a theoretical basis for the application of buckwheat and buckwheat protein in food.
