Five Lactobacillus strains of intestinal and food origins were grown in MRS broth or milk containing various concentrations of linoleic acid or conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The fatty acids had bacteriostatic, bacteriocidal, or no effect depending on bacterial strain, fatty acid concentration, fatty acid type, and growth medium. Both fatty acids displayed dose-dependent inhibition. All strains were inhibited to a greater extent by the fatty acids in broth than in milk. The CLA isomer mixture… CONTINUE READING
