Comparison of Successful Probiotic Strains
Several probiotic strains are used by the food and dairy industry and have some common documented properties, but each strain has to be studied at its own merit.
Effect of phenolic acids and anthocyanins on growth, viability and malolactic activity of a lactic acid bacterium☆
Gallic acid and free anthocyanins activated cell growth and the rate of malic acid degradation, while vanillic acid showed a slight inhibiting effect, while protocatechuic acid had no effect.
