Method for direct selection of potentially probiotic Bifidobacterium strains from human feces based on their acid-adaptation ability.

Abstract

A method for direct selection of acid-resistant Bifidobacterium strains was developed by prolonged exposure of human feces to homologous lethal stress conditions. The recovered strains were intrinsically resistant to acidic gastric conditions (pH 2.0) and also showed good tolerance to high concentrations of bile salts and NaCl. Bifidobacterium breve and… (More)
