Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are a diverse group of bacteria that comprise low GC content Gram-positive cocci or rods that produces lactic acid as the major end product of the fermentation process.

Bifidobacterium genera may also be considered as a part of the LAB group for possessing some similar phenotypical characteristics despite the higher GC : Marcela Albuquerque Cavalcanti de Albuquerque, Alejandra de Moreno de LeBlanc, Jean Guy LeBlanc, Raq.

About this book Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have historically been used as starter cultures for the production of fermented foods, especially dairy products. Some (not all!) lactic acid bacteria ferment lactose, the milk sugar.

The production of yogurt is accomplished by two organisms, Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. The resulting low pH from lactose fermentation causes the coagula-tion of the milk protein (casein), forming a curd.

Lactic acid bacteria can grow at temperatures from °C and not surprisingly are tolerant to acidic conditions, with most strains able to grow at pH The genera of lactic acid bacteria Lactics are classified by the fermentation pathway used to ferment glucose and by their cell morphology.

J.A. Narvhus, L. Axelsson, in Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), Introduction. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are responsible for a great diversification in the flavor and texture of food products due to their fermentation of food raw materials.

Description Lactic acid bacteria. PDF

However, in some circumstances they can be responsible for food spoilage. Food fermentation technology, along with drying. The primary means for detecting bacteriocin activity of the lactic acid bacteria is the agar plate diffusion assay.

Agar plate assays are popular for screening of antagonistic activity, monitoring expression, optimization, and inactivation of bacteriocins for their characterization. While lactic acid producing fermentation has been utilized to improve the storability, palatability, and nutritive value of perishable foods for a very long time, only recently have we begun to understand just why it works.

The first edition of this international bestseller both predicted and encouraged vigorous study of various strains of lactic a4/5(6). Product Information. This book is a compilation of latest research on Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB).

The ongoing scientific research in several parts of the globe on the proteomics, genomics and genetic engineering of lactic acid bacteria is enhancing our knowledge of their physiology, pushing further the boundaries for their potential applications. This book is an essential reference for established researchers and scientists, doctoral and post-doctoral students, university professors and instructors, and food technologists working on food microbiology, physiology and biotechnology of lactic acid bacteria.

Lactic Acid Bacteria: Biodiversity and Taxonomy is an essential reference for research scientists, biochemists and microbiologists working in the food and fermentation industries and in research institutions.

Advanced students of food science and technology will also find it an indispensable guide to the subject. Lactic acid bacteria comprise an ecologically diverse group of microorganisms united by the formation of lactic acid as the primary metabolite of sugar metabolism Utilize sugars by either homo- or heterofermentative pathways, as well as L-malic acid, a major acid present in grape must Whereas growth of some bacteria in certain wines is.

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have historically been used as starter cultures for the production of fermented foods, especially dairy products. Over recent years, new areas have had a strong impact on LAB studies: the application of omics tools; the study of complex microbial ecosystems, the discovery of new LAB species, and the use of LAB as powerhouses in the food and medical industries.

This book is an essential reference for established researchers and scientists, clinical and advanced students, university professors and instructors, nutritionists and food technologists working on food microbiology, physiology and biotechnology of lactic acid : Lactic acid bacteria are an order of gram-positive, low-GC, acid-tolerant, generally nonsporulating, nonrespiring, either rod-shaped or spherical bacteria that share common metabolic and physiological characteristics.

These bacteria, usually found in decomposing plants and milk products, produce lactic acid as the major metabolic end product of carbohydrate fermentation.

This trait has, throughout Class: Bacilli. The lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are a group of related micro-organisms that are enormously important in the food and beverage industries. Generally regarded as safe for human consumption (and, in the case of probiotics, positively beneficial to human health), the LAB have been used for centuries, and continue to be used worldwide on an industrial scale, in food fermentation processes, including.
