Artisanal fermented beverages have been associated with beneficial effects for a long time. In Mexico, there are a wide variety of artisanal fermented beverages such as Tepache, where the fermentation is initiated by the addition of grains of a polysaccharide-containing biofilm matrix formed by a symbiotic association of bacteria and yeasts known as “Tibicos.” These microorganisms can be responsible for the beneficial effect associated with fermented beverages inoculated with Tibicos. The probiotic potential of microorganisms has been widely studied, mainly in lactic acid bacteria, while despite the wide distribution of yeasts, these have not been so studied. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro the probiotic potential properties of a yeast isolated from Tibicos. For this, the yeast was identified by molecular techniques as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which showed a good resistance to pH 2.0, bile salts and in vitro digestion. The results also showed a good ability to form cellular aggregates as a result of having a hydrophobic surface. In addition, it can be considered as safe since it does not show hemolytic activity and is sensitive to nystatin. Additionally, the yeast presented an excellent antioxidant capacity to reduce the DPPH radical. The S. cerevisiae strain C41 isolated from Tibicos was successfully compared by means of in vitro tests with the only recognized probiotic yeast, S. boulardii. These findings point Saccharomyces cerevisiae C41 as a potentially probiotic yeast; nevertheless, it is necessary to consider further in vitro and in vivo studies that establish the benefits that this yeast could provide.

Few studies have been reported regarding probiotic properties of Lactococcus lactis strains although they are extensively used as starter cultures in the production of dairy products. In this study 8 wild isolates of Lactococcus lactis were evaluated in vitro with regard to resistance to simulated gastric and intestinal juices, adherence ability to Caco-2 cells and HT29-MTX-E12 cell lines, anti-microbial activity, hydrophobicity and antibiotic susceptibility. The results revealed that all isolat...

Abstract The possible beneficial properties of food and associated microorganisms for both human and animal health are increasingly investigated. While many bacteria have been characterised as probiotics, only one yeast variety, Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii , has been recognised to be part of this group, regardless of the importance of yeasts in the food industry. In this work, we have studied the probiotic or health-beneficial potential of 130 yeast strains isolated from food belongi...

Four lactic acid bacteria, Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides, were isolated from aguamiel the sap obtained from Agave salmiana from Mexico and identified by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The probiotic potential of these strains was evaluated and compared with a commercial probiotic (Lactobacillus plantarum 299v) from human origin. All the strains survived the in vitro gastrointestinal simulation conditions: the stomach simulation (3 h, pH 2, 37 °C) and the intestinal simulation (...

Abstract Bacterial aggregation phenotype and cell surface hydrophobicity of dairy Lactobacillus plantarum strains were screened in order to assess a correlation with their adhesion and pathogen competitive exclusion abilities. Lactobacilli strains showing an aggregation phenotype, L. plantarum IFPL33, IFPL81, IFPL150, IFPL156 and IFPL162, also exhibited the highest percentages of autoaggregation (> 50%) at 24 h. In addition, autoaggregation abilities of the lactobacilli were highly correlated wi...

Kefir is a fermented milk-based beverage to which a number of health-promoting properties have been attributed. The microbes responsible for the fermentation of milk to produce kefir consist of a complex association of bacteria and yeasts, bound within a polysaccharide matrix, known as the kefir grain. The consistency of this microbial population, and that present in the resultant beverage, has been the subject of a number of previous, almost exclusively culture-based, studies which have indicat...

Abstract Produced from raw unpasteurized milk, nunu is a spontaneously fermented yoghurt-like product made in Ghana and other parts of West Africa. Despite the importance of nunu in the diet of many Africans, there is currently only limited information available on the microorganisms associated with nunu processing. With the aim of obtaining a deeper understanding of the process and as a first step towards developing starter cultures with desired technological properties for nunu production, a m...

The microbiota balancing antibiotics have been used in animal feed since the 50's, by promoting health benefits to animals, however, the prolonged use of these additives triggered the problem of bacterial resistance, which led the world and national bodies (WHO, EU, FDA and MAPA) to ban various additives. However, birds in industrial systems are subjected to dense and challenged environments, making it impossible to exempt compounds in the diet that modulate the intestinal microbiota and consequ...

This experiment was conducted to characterize potential Lactobacillus spp. isolated from mother’s milk and infant feces to obtain new and specific probiotic strains. In this study, seven ascendant strains were identified as Lactobacillus spp. based on their morphological characteristics and biochemical properties. Among them, only one (C-1) isolate was identified as Lactobacillus oris through BioLogTM identification and investigated probiotic potentiality tests such as pH and bile tolerance, NaC...

Probiotics are live microorganisms that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses. Most probiotics on the market are bacterial, primarily Lactobacillus. Yeast are an inevitable part of the microbiota of various fermented foods and beverages and have several beneficial properties that bacteria do not have. In this study, yeast strains were isolated from fermented food and beverages. Various physiological features of the candidate probiotic isolates were preliminarily investigated, incl...

The study, for the first time, reports the efficacy, safety and probiotic properties of two Lactobacillus mucosae strains, Lact. mucosae SRV5 and Lact. mucosae SRV10 isolated from donkey milk. All major in vitro screening assays were employed to evaluate studied strains. Both strains displayed good survivability at gastric pH 2.0, 0.3% bile and simulated oro-gastrointestinal fluid (above 88%). Also, cultures demonstrated good cell surface hydrophobicity and auto-aggregation ability, clearly indi...

The water kefir grains are a multi-species starter culture used to produce fermented beverages of sucrose solution with or without fruit extracts. The water kefir grains are known in Mexico as Tibicos, which are mainly used to produce Tepache, a traditional Mexican drink made by fermenting pineapple peel. The microbiota of Tibicos mainly include lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and since most probiotics belong to this group, Tibicos may represent a potential source of probiotic bacteria. Moreover, sev...

The nonpathogenic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii (Sb) has beneficial effects on the human intestine, thus applied as probiotics for the treatment of diarrhea and gastrointestinal diseases. This is the only commercialized yeast with the purpose of human medicine. Currently, little is known about their multiple mechanisms of actions. The S. boulardii yeast strain is isolated and identified by using the BIOLOGTM microarray identification system and morphologically. To understand the functional roles...
