The production of organic acids, acetaldehyde, β-galactosidase, proteolytic acitivity, carbohydrate metabolism and resistance to low pH of 2.5 as well as bile of 4% salt concentration were used as selection critieria for the assessment of 19 strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus , with respect to their probiotic properties. Their activity was compared with the activity of reference strains. Most of the strains revealed the tested features at the same or higher level as the reference strains.
