When lactic acid bacteria are used industrially as fermentation starters it is important to obtain stable and highly viable bacterial cultures. Six strains of Lactobacillus encapsulated in Ca-alginate gel beads were investigated to determine whether dehydration, storage and rehydration may inflict injury. A negative relationship between leakage of lactate dehydrogenase and survival rates was found. Mesophilic lactobacilli showed only negligible leakage compared with thermophilic strains when… CONTINUE READING
