The article discusses the results of screening strains of probiotic bacteria by their ability to metabolize cholesterol during development on different nutrient media. Cholesterol content was determined by the method of Zlatkis-Zack. The results on the possibility of creating starter cultures from proven strains capable of lowering cholesterol in vitro and taking into account technological properties were presented. Four starter cultures were created, which included microorganisms belonging to…
