Abstract The survival of bacterial strains isolated from tejuino was evaluated in the human gastrointestinal model (ARIS) using saline solution and simulated food as matrices. Antagonistic activity towards pathogenic bacteria, short-chain fatty acids production and adhesion to HT-29 cells were also studied. Leuconostoc citreum CIATEJ BI–49.1 , Weissella cibaria CIATEJ BI–48.1 , Chryseobacterium bovis CIATEJ BI–55.1 and Bacillus safensis CIATEJ BI–75.1 were selected and inoculated in ARIS model. B. safensis and C. bovis were unable to survive the simulated human gastrointestinal tract conditions. Leu. citreum seemed to be more resistant to gastrointestinal conditions than W. cibaria , recovering 7–8 log CFU/mL. In the antagonistic assay, Leu. citreum showed the highest (p  S. aureus and S. Typhimurium strains, while W. cibaria had the highest (p  L. monocytogenes . In regards of short chain fatty acids production, Leu. citreum showed highest (p  W. cibaria (approximately 0.5%). Leu. citreum could be a potential probiotic strain due to its tolerance to gastrointestinal conditions, antagonistic activity towards foodborne pathogens, short-chain fatty acids production and adhesion to HT-29 cells.

Abstract Spontaneously fermented foods, such as sourdough, represent a source of lactic acid bacteria with potential interesting functional and technological properties as well as a potential source of probiotics. The choice of the starter cultures has a critical impact on the palatability, processability and nutritional attributes of fermented products. The aim of this study was to characterize the predominant microbial species previously isolated from a sourdough-like spontaneous fermented whe...

Fermented foods have been a well-established part of the human diet for thousands of years, without much of an appreciation for, or an understanding of, their underlying microbial functionality, until recently. The use of many organisms derived from these foods, and their applications in probiotics, have further illustrated their impact on gastrointestinal wellbeing and diseases affecting other sites in the body. However, despite the many benefits of fermented foods, their recommended consumptio...

A total of 234 LAB isolates from Brazilian food products were initially screened for their ability to survive at pH 2.0. Fifty one of the isolates survived and were selected. They were characterized by phenotypic methods, rep-PCR and identified using 16S rRNA gene sequencing as Lactobacillus fermentum (34 isolates), Lactobacillus plantarum (10) and Lactobacillus brevis (7). Based on being either highly tolerant to bile, showing an ability for auto-aggregation and/or hydrophobic properties, one L...

Dietary probiotics should reach the intestine viable and in high numbers; therefore, they should tolerate the stress associated to the gastro-intestinal (GI) environment. Indeed, all along the different GI sections, probiotics are challenged by several sources of stress, including low pH, bile and digestive enzymes. Bacterial cells are equipped with various defense mechanisms to allow survival in hostile environments. The food matrix used to deliver beneficial bacteria may contribute to their pr...

The present study searched for potential probiotic strains from various human fecal samples. A total of 67 aerobic and 38 anaerobic strains were isolated from 5 different categories of human feces. Systematic procedures were used to evaluate the probiotic properties of the isolated strains. These showed about 75–97% survivability in acidic and bile salt environments. Adhesion to intestinal cell line Caco-2 was also high. The isolates exhibited hydrophobic properties in hexadecane. The culture su...

Abstract null null In Mexico, close to 200 fermented products have been described, of which, approximately 20 are beverages. They were obtained through rustic and ancestral fermentation methods by different indigenous Mexican communities; most of them were used in ceremonies, agricultural work, and other occasions. For their elaboration, different substrates obtained from plants are used, where uncontrolled and low-scale spontaneous anaerobic fermentation occurs. In Mexico, some of these product...

Abstract null null The species Leuconostoc citreum is often isolated from grain and vegetable fermentations such as sourdough, sauerkraut and kimchi. Lc. citreum has seen an increase in its use as a starter culture for various fermentations and food applications. The strain Lc. citreum TR116 has been applied previously in this laboratory aimed at sugar depletion through metabolism resulting in the reduction of fructose to mannitol, a polyol considered as a sweet carbohydrate. Besides reducing su...

Abstract Mexico is characterized by a great variety of fermented foods, among which the traditional non-distilled fermented beverages play an important role as part of the Mexican gastronomic culture. In particular, Tejuino is a fermented beverage made of maize and consumed during cultural ceremonies by different ethnic groups in some of the states of Mexico. For their production; Tejuino has two different ways of elaboration: an artisanal process which consists of the fermentation of germinated...

Weissella strains have been the subject of much research over the last 5 years because of the genus' technological and probiotic potential. Certain strains have attracted the attention of the pharmaceutical, medical, and food industries because of their ability to produce antimicrobial exopolysaccharides (EPSs). Moreover, Weissella strains are able to keep foodborne pathogens in check because of the bacteriocins, hydrogen peroxide, and organic acids they can produce; all listed have recognized p...

This study was conducted to evaluate the probiotic properties and antioxidant activities of lactic acid bacteria strains including Levilactobacillus brevis KU15147 isolated from kimchi to determine their potential as a probiotic. The tolerance of all strains to gastric acid and bile salts was more than 90%. The strains did not produce a β-glucuronidase and survived following treatment with gentamicin, kanamycin, streptomycin, and ciprofloxacin. L. brevis KU15147 showed greater adhesion activity ...

Abstract The jeriva (Syagrus romanzoffiana) and the macauba (Acrocomia aculeata) are palm trees of the Arecaceae family, widely distributed in tropical and subtropical areas of Latin America, which have a low production cost and high productivity throughout the year. Due to the high content of lipids, their fruits have been used for oil extraction, which generates byproducts such as the pulps and the kernel cakes, a nutritionally rich byproduct that can be added into human food and, may have pre...

Abstract Preservation of food through fermentation is an ancient practice that, besides extending produce shelf-life, has represented a significant source of nutrients and health-promoting compounds in the human diet throughout history. Traditional fermented beverages are an essential element of the cultural and culinary heritage of many countries. In Mexico, several indigenous fermented beverages have been consumed since prehispanic times, and are still used for ceremonial purposes. The product...
