Effect of electroporation on viability and bioconversion of isoflavones in mannitol-soymilk fermented by lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.


BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of electroporation (2.5-7.5 kV cm⁻¹ for 3.0-4.0 ms) on the growth of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, membrane properties and bioconversion of isoflavones in mannitol-soymilk. RESULTS The viability of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria decreased immediately after electroporation. This was attributed… (More)
