In recent years, many studies have been conducted to develop functional meat products, focusing on strategies to maximize health-promoting compounds and reduce the presence of those that may cause negative impacts on the consumer's health. As such, the use of prebiotic, probiotic, and synbiotic agents in meat products has grown considerably. In addition, the use of new generation probiotics in meat products is a novel field that can be explored. With the most recent paraprobiotics/postbiotics update, several components could be tested in meat products. Some interventional studies using meat products added with biotic agents have shown great potential as functional foods by reducing the formation of nitrous compounds in the gut and improving the functionality of the gut microbiota. Although there are few studies focusing on synbiotic meat products, the results are also very promising in this field. As such, this review seeks to describe how probiotics, prebiotics, paraprobiotics and postbiotics can be employed in meat products to give them functional properties, as well as some of the major issues that may arise when using these agents.
