Yogurts are ready to drink foods commonly taken for energy production and for health in Nigeria but there is paucity of studies done to evaluate their food safety. Therefore this study was carried out to determine the microflora of some available yogurts sold in Ibadan. Twenty types of commercially prepared yogurt products were purchased, from Ibadan in Oyo State, Nigeria and its’ environs, transported, processed and analyzed using standard laboratory methods. A total of 25 different organisms…

Microbial Quality and Sensory Assessment of Yogurt Marketed in Akure Metropolis, Nigeria

The study revealed that above fifty percent (50%) of the yogurt samples bought from Akure city were still below stipulated quality standard in terms of their microbial and organoleptic qualities.

Nutritional and microbiological quality assessment of commercial yogurt sold in different districts of Bangladesh: a food safety issue

The aim of this study was to investigate the nutritional and microbial quality of yoghurt from different districts of Bangladesh. Protein content was higher (4.56g/kg) in SB2 (sample Bogura-2), fat

Microbiological load of yoghurt sold in Omoku schools, Rivers State, Nigeria

Results indicate that yoghurt sold in Omoku schools is of poor microbiological quality and thus their production and sale should be closely monitored in order to protect students and pupils and the general public from food-borne infection.

Microbiological Assessment of Commercial Yogurt Sold in Ota Metropolis, Ogun State, Nigeria.

Ten authorized Yogurt products purchased within Ota metropolis, Ogun State of Nigeria were subjected to pH, Total Bacterial Count (TBC) and Total Fungal count (TFC) analysis and showed no significant difference within the bacteria isolates, while the fungi isolates showed significant difference (P<0.05).

Properties of an extracellular lipase from a traditional yoghurt yeast

The results obtained indicated that the extracellular yeast lipase was an organic solvent- and detergent tolerant enzyme having the optimum activity at mild reaction conditions.

Factors Associated with the Current State of Food Safety Knowledge and Practices among the ‘Doi’ Workers in Bogura, Bangladesh: A Cross-sectional Study

'Doi,' or yogurt, is a traditional dairy product in Bangladesh. Bogura's 'Doi' is the most popular of all 'Doi' items throughout the country. The state of food safety in the 'Doi' business is of



Soybeans Yoghurt Production Using Starter Culture From 'Nono'

The isolate of Lactobacillus and Streptococcus gave a fine yoghurt like product with a characteristic acid flavour, cream odour and  muustard- like consistency with a pH 4.36.

Occurrence and Growth of Yeasts in Yogurts

The growth of yeasts in yogurts was related to the ability of the yeasts to grow at refrigeration temperatures, to ferment lactose and sucrose, and to hydrolyze milk casein.

Bacterial Spoilage of Citrus Products at pH Lower than 3.51

A strain of Lactobacillus brevis, L-3, was isolated from a blown can of grapefruit segments in sugar syrup; it caused spoilage of citrus products having pH values lower than 3.5. When inoculated into

Antagonistic action of Lactobacillus lactis toward Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli O157:H7 during growth and refrigerated storage.

Interaction studies with pH-neutralized broth indicated that acid production by L lactis was primarily responsible for the inhibition of pathogens, and suggests that this strain of L. lactis does not inhibit Salmonella spp.

Detection and activity of lactacin B, a bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus acidophilus.

Examination of strains of L. acidophilus within the six homology groupings of Johnson et al. demonstrated that production of the bacteriocin lactacin B could not be used in classification of neotype L. Acidophilus strains, however, the usefulness of employing sensitivity to lactac in B in classified of dairy lactobacilli is suggested.

[The current concepts of the mechanisms of the therapeutic-prophylactic action of probiotics from bacteria in the genus Bacillus].

The authors made a conclusion that the effect of biopreparations from bacilli is the multifactor process, when b Bacilli get to the gastrointestinal tract they begin producing biologically active substances which make the immediate effect on pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microorganisms as well as activate specific and nonspecific systems of the macroorganism protection.

[The chemoprophylaxis and chemotherapy of opportunistic infections].

The analysis of the authors' observations showed that the pre- and postoperative use of parenteral antibacterial drugs such as cephalosporins and their combinations with aminoglycosides, the simultaneous use of beta-lactams and lysozyme, and the local application of new ointments were prophylactically efficient in patients with high risk of surgical infections.
