AIMS This work aimed at clarifying the physiological responses of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus CFL1 cells after exposure to acidification at the end of fermentation, in relation to their cryotolerance. METHODS AND RESULTS Cells acidified at the end of the fermentation (pH 5.25 for 30 min) had their cryotolerance improved as compared to the(More)
Apple pomace is the processing waste generated after apple juice manufacturing and represents up to 30% of the original fruit. This solid residue consists of a complex mixture of peel, core, seed, calyx, stem, and soft tissue. This residual material is a poor animal feed supplement because of its extremely low protein content and high amount of sugar. The(More)
This work aimed at analyzing the effect of microfiltration conditions (cross-flow velocity and transmembrane pressure) on the quality of frozen Lactobacillus bulgaricus CFL1 starters produced on pilot scale. Microfiltered cells were less resistant during the concentration process than centrifuged cells. In contrast, bacterial cryotolerance during freezing(More)
In this work, we propose the reuse of apple pomace as a substrate for fungal chitosan production by liquid cultivation of Gongronella butleri CCT4274. Different concentrations of reducing sugars and sodium nitrate were added to the aqueous extract of apple pomace and the best result was obtained with 40 g/L of reducing sugars and 2.5 g/L of sodium nitrate.(More)
The effect of acidification of the fermented broth at the end of the culture was examined on the growth and the cryotolerance of Lactobacillus bulgaricus CFL1, as a new means to better preserve lactic acid bacteria. Cryotolerance was investigated by evaluating the loss of specific acidification activity during freezing and frozen storage. An experimental(More)
