Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are capable of converting carbohydrate substrates into organic acids (mainly lactic acid) and producing a wide range of metabolites. Due to their interesting beneficial properties, LAB are widely used as starter cultures, as probiotics, and as microbial cell factories. Exploring LAB present in unknown niches may lead to the isolation of unique species or strains with relevant technological properties. Autochthonous rather than allochthonous starter cultures are…

Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of lactic acid bacteria isolated from spontaneously fermented vegetable amaranth

The aim of this research was to isolate, characterize, and classify indigenous lactic acid bacteria from fermented vegetable amaranth, a leafy vegetable native to Africa.

First characterization of the probiotic potential of lactic acid bacteria isolated from Costa Rican pineapple silages

Only L. paracasei_6714 showed a strong Listeria inhibition pattern; this isolate showed a good auto-aggregation ability, was resistant to some of the tested antibiotics but was not found to harbor plasmids, and showed a high capacity for adhesion to epithelial cells and prevented the invasion of Salmonella in HeLa cells.

Evaluation of lactic acid bacteria strains isolated from fructose-rich environments for their mannitol-production and milk-gelation abilities.

It is shown that fructose-rich niches can be considered important sources of fructophilic LAB strains, with the potential to be used as starter cultures or adjunct cultures for the manufacture of mannitol-enriched fermented dairy products and beverages.

An Assessment of the Lactic Acid-Producing Potential of Bacterial Strains Isolated from Food Waste

The potential for the production of lactic acid from food waste with lactic Acid bacteria was illustrated and a hicD gene, known to catalyze the conversion of pyruvate to D-lactate, was discovered in the genome.

Succession of Bacterial and Fungal Communities during Fermentation of Medicinal Plants

The fermentation of medicinal plants has been studied very little, as compared to the fermentation of food and beverages. One approach applies fermentation by single bacterial or fungal strains and

E ff ectiveness of Bacteriocin-Producing Lactic Acid Bacteria and Bifidobacterium Isolated from Honeycombs against Spoilage Microorganisms and Pathogens Isolated from Fruits and Vegetables

: Screening natural products for bacteriocin-producing bacteria may be the equilibrium point between the consumer demand for mild processing and the industry’s need for hazard control. Raw



The molecular and phenotypic characterization of fructophilic lactic acid bacteria isolated from the guts of Apis mellifera L. derived from a Polish apiary

Lactic acid bacteria originating from an Apis mellifera guts inhibited the growth of the major honeybee pathogen, Paenibacillus larvae, meaning that the LAB studied may have the health-conferring properties of probiotics.

Diversity of Lactic Acid Bacteria Associated with Fresh Coffee Cherries in Taiwan

Results suggest that various LAB are associated with fresh coffee cherries in Taiwan and some of the isolates found showed potential as antifungal agents.


It is concluded that Lactobacillus plantarum was the most abundant type of lactic acid bacteria distributed in most of the fruit samples studied, on the other hand Leuconostoc mesenteroid subsp.

Functional properties of Lactobacillus strains isolated from kimchi.

Honeybees and beehives are rich sources for fructophilic lactic acid bacteria.

Biodiversity of Lactic Acid Bacteria

Diversity of LAB in different traditional fermented foods (especially dairy products, fermented vegetable food and meat-based food) is reviewed in this chapter and the biodiversity of lactic acid bacteria in silage is reviewed at the end of this chapter.

Identification, stress tolerance, and antioxidant activity of lactic acid bacteria isolated from tropically grown fruits and leaves.

The robust capacity of W. cibaria and of Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides for vegetable lactic fermentation aimed to ameliorate food nutritional and functional quality was highlighted and acidification kinetics determined from BHI broth cultures showed genus-related patterns.

Isolation and identification of lactic acid bacteria from fermented red dragon fruit juices.

P phenotypic and genotypic methods were used to confirm the identity of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) appeared in fermented red dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) beverages and belonged to the genus of Enterococcus based on their biochemical characteristics.

Why Are Weissella spp. Not Used as Commercial Starter Cultures for Food Fermentation

Among other fermentation processes, lactic acid fermentation is a valuable process which enhances the safety, nutritional and sensory properties of food. The use of starters is recommended compared
