Wheat contains various essential nutrients including the B group of vitamins. However, B group vitamins, normally present in cereals-derived products, are easily removed or destroyed during milling, food processing or cooking. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are widely used as starter cultures for the fermentation of a large variety of foods and can improve the safety, shelf life, nutritional value, flavor and overall quality of the fermented products. In this regard, the identification and… 
Recent update on lactic acid bacteria producing riboflavin and folates: application for food fortification and treatment of intestinal inflammation
TLDR
The potential uses of riboflavin and folates producing LAB for the biofortification of food, as therapeutics against intestinal pathologies and to complement anti‐inflammatory/anti‐neoplastic treatments are shown.
Biosynthesis of vitamins and enzymes in fermented foods by lactic acid bacteria and related genera - a promising approach.
TLDR
Current paper reviews recent advances associated with biosynthesis of vitamins and enzymes by virtue of LAB and related genera and indicates promising applications at commercial level.
From farm to fork: it could be the case of Lactic Acid Bacteria in the stimulation of folates biofortification in food crops
B-group vitamins are essential nutrients for living organisms. Despite that B-group vitamins are present in a multiplicity of foods, vitamin deficiency in human still occur in many countries, mainly
Metabolism Characteristics of Lactic Acid Bacteria and the Expanding Applications in Food Industry
TLDR
This article reviews and prospects the important metabolites in the expanded application of lactic acid bacteria from the perspective of bioengineering and biotechnology.
Chapter 4 – Food Ingredients Synthesized by Lactic Acid Bacteria
Abstract Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) play a central role in the production of fermented foods. Due to their metabolic properties they are used as starters or coadjuvants of various dairy, meat,
Lactobacillus plantarum strains for multifunctional oat-based foods
Fermented oat-based foods offer attractive prospects within the market of non-dairy functional products, since they are suitable substrates for the delivery of probiotic microorganisms, and are
Probiotic lactic acid bacteria for the production of multifunctional fresh-cut cantaloupe
TLDR
The results of this work encourage further implementation of new foods with multifunctional properties, including bio-fortification with nutritional compounds and bio-protection against foodborne pathogenic bacteria.
Cereal-Based Fermented Foods of Africa as Functional Foods
TLDR
The present status of some indigenous cereal fermented foods and beverages are outlined with some information on the microbiology and biochemistry of the fermentations as well as the beneficial and their health attributes.
Health benefits of fermented foods
TLDR
The health effects of fermented foods are investigated to investigate whether there is a relationship between fermented foods and health benefits as some studies have shown no link.

B‐Group vitamin production by lactic acid bacteria – current knowledge and potential applications
TLDR
This review article will show the current knowledge of vitamin biosynthesis by LAB and show how the proper selection of starter cultures and probiotic strains could be useful in preventing clinical and subclinical vitamin deficiencies and in the elaboration of novel vitamin‐enriched products.
Biotechnology and Pasta-Making: Lactic Acid Bacteria as a New Driver of Innovation
TLDR
Using sourdough as a model, the relevant state-of-art is focused on to introduce a LAB-based biotechnological step in industrial pasta-making, a potential world driver of innovation that might represent a cutting-edge advancement in pasta production.
Folate Production by Probiotic Bacteria
TLDR
The use of folate-producing probiotic strains could more efficiently confer protection against inflammation and cancer, both exerting the beneficial effects of probiotics and preventing the folate deficiency that is associated with premalignant changes in the colonic epithelia.
Biotechnological production of vitamin B2-enriched bread and pasta.
TLDR
Two riboflavin-overproducing strains of Lactobacillus plantarum isolated were used for the preparation of bread and pasta to enhance their vitamin B2 content to represent a convenient and efficient food-grade biotechnological application for the production of vitamin B 2-enriched Bread and pasta.
Modulation of folate production in lactic acid bacteria
TLDR
Folate overproduction results in resistance towards the folate antagonist methotrexate (MTX) and mutants that showed resistance towards MTX were isolated and one of these was found to produce 70% more folate in comparison to the wild-type.
Nutraceutical production with food-grade microorganisms.
TLDR
Developments in the genetic engineering of food-grade microoganisms means that the production of certain nutraceuticals can be enhanced or newly induced through overexpression and/or disruption of relevant metabolic genes.
Bacterial vitamin B2, B11 and B12 overproduction: An overview.
TLDR
This review looks at how vitamin overproduction strategies have been developed, some of which have successfully been tested in animal models and could be relatively easily adapted by the food industry to develop novel vitamin-enhanced functional foods with enhanced consumer appeal.
Folate production by lactic acid bacteria and other food-grade microorganisms
TLDR
A number of studies have shown that high intakes of folic acid, the chemically synthesized form of folate, but not natural folates, can cause adverse affects in some individuals such as the masking of the hematological manifestations of vitamin B.
Beta-Glucans Improve Growth, Viability and Colonization of Probiotic Microorganisms
TLDR
A 2-substituted-(1,3)-β-d-glucan of non-dairy bacterial origin has a prebiotic effect on three probiotic strains and potentiates in vitro adhesion of the probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum WCFS1 to human intestinal epithelial cells.
Fermented functional foods based on probiotics and their biogenic metabolites.
The claimed health benefits of fermented functional foods are expressed either directly through the interaction of ingested live microorganisms, bacteria or yeast with the host (probiotic effect) or
