Technological, functional and safety aspects of enterococci in fermented vegetable products: a mini-review
TLDR
The presence and role in fermented vegetable foods (including table olives, sauerkraut, kimchi, tomato juice, French beans, caper berries and cereal-based products) will be covered.
Dualistic aspects of Enterococcus spp. in foods
Enterococcus spp. belong to the lactic acid bacteria (LAB) group and comprise more than 20 species. They are widely distributed in nature, and E. faecium and E. faecalis are the most frequent
Functional and safety aspects of enterococci in dairy foods
TLDR
The present review describes the broader insight of the benefits and risks of enterococci in dairy foods and their safety assessment.

TLDR
This article provides literature data available on microbial ecology, biochemical properties, production of anti- Listeria bacteriocins, and potential pathogenic traits of enterococci isolated from different dairy products.
Characterization of the bacterial flora of Sudanese sorghum flour and sorghum sourdough
TLDR
From the Sudanese long‐term dough, seven strains of Lactobacillus were isolated, representing the dominant flora, and sequence comparison ofpartial 16S rRNA gene sequences were used to clarify their phylogenetic positions.
Isolation and Characterization of Microorganisms Associated with the Traditional Sorghum Fermentation for Production of Sudanese Kisra
TLDR
Sorghum flour obtained from Sudan was mixed with water in a 1:2 (wt/vol) ratio and fermented at 30 degrees C for 24 h and P. pentosaceus was the dominant microorganism at the end of the 24-h fermentation.
