Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are widely used in the combination of probiotic (Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus) bacteria to manufacture fermented dairy products. In Argentina, commercial strains of Lactobacillus acidophillus. L. casei, L.rhamnosus. and Bifidobacteria sp are added to fermented milks. Yoghurts are manufactured with S.thermophillus and L.delbrueckii, subsp. Bulgaricus culture and probiotic cheese is manufactured with Streptococcus and Leuconostoc cultures. Lactobacillu are detected in large number in all regions of the murine gastrointestinal tract of human and animal. The criteria for the selection of probiotic LAB are 1) It should be of human origin, 2) should tolerate gastric conditions and should be able to adhere to the colon region. In the present study LAB strain previously isolated in the laboratory (LG) was adapted for their probiotic properties. These include acid tolerance, bile tolerance, survival in the gastrointestinal tract, antimicrobial property, hydrophobicity, tolerance to digestive enzymes and antagonistic activity of the culture with food borne pathogens. The survival rate at low pH and at high bile salt concentration (4%), high antimicrobial activity against food borne pathogen like Citrobacter, adaptation of the culture to GIT condition, high hydrophobicity and tolerance to digestive enzymes makes it a potential probiotic culture.
