Probiotic yogurt offers higher immune-protection than probiotic whey beverage
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2013)
Lactic acid starter and probiotic bacteria: A comparative "in vitro" study of probiotic characteristics and biological barrier resistance
(Elsevier Science, 2003-06)
Probiotic characteristics (deconjugation of bile salts, hydrophobicity and β-galactosidase activity) and the resistance to biological barriers (gastric juice and bile salts) of 24 strains of lactic acid starter bacteria ...
Effect of different matrices on probiotic resistance to in vitro simulated gastrointestinal conditions
In this study, we evaluated the effect of different matrices (MRS, milk and milk with inulin) on the tolerance of probiotic strains (Lactobacillus acidophilus La-5 and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis BB-12) to ...
Probiotic supplementation in dental caries: is it possible to replace conventional treatment?
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Abstract Background Probiotic supplementation alters oral microbiota composition and could reduce the risk or treat oral cavity diseases, such as dental caries, which are ...
Probiotics: Reality of benefits for life, a review
The intestinal mucosa is constantly exposed to the action of pathogens, but these agents are not always able to cause damage. This is mainly because the bacteria of the normal intestinal microbiota present in this mucosa ...
Characterization of fresh cheese with addition of probiotics and prebiotics
Sensorial and microbiological characteristics of a Brazilian fresh cheese samples with Bifidobacterium animalis subps. lactis as well as samples with this probiotic and polydextrose, a prebiotic ingredient, were evaluated. ...
Gut mucosal immunomodulation by probiotic fresh cheese
Probiotic Fresh Cheese (PFC) is a suitable vehicle for the oral administration of Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactococcus lactis (lactic acid starter bacteria), Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. ...
Role of viability of probiotic strains in their persistence in the gut and in mucosal immune stimulation
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2004-10)
Aims: To determine how probiotic bacteria contact with intestinal epithelial and immune cells and the conditions to induce a good mucosal immune stimulation. Methods and Results: Lactobacillus casei was studied by transmission ...
Effect of potential probiotic bacteria on growth and survival of tilapia Oreochromis niloticus L., cultured in the laboratory under high density and suboptimum temperature
(Aquaculture Research, 2009)
This study examined the e¡ect of potential probiotic bacteria on growth and survival of the tilapia Oreochromis niloticus, under high density and suboptimum temperature. Presumptive Bacillus and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) ...
Microencapsulation of probiotic strains for swine feeding
(Pharmaceutical Soc Japan, 2008-11)
Probiotics are live microorganisms which have health-promoting attributes. These bacteria must overcome biological barriers, including acid in the stomach and bile in the intestine to exert beneficial effects. The encapsulation ...
