In the present study, the probiotic properties of 52 lactic acid bacteria strains, isolated from the intestinal mucosa of 60-day-old healthy piglets, were evaluated in vitro in order to acquire probiotics of potential application. Based on acidic and bile salt resistance, 11 lactic acid bacteria strains were selected, among which 1 was identified as Pediococcus acidilactici, 3 as Enterococcus faecium, 3 as Lactobacillus rhamnosus, 2 as Lactobacillus brevis, and 2 as Lactobacillus plantarum by… CONTINUE READING
