  • Xylooligosaccharides and Arabinoxylanoligosaccharides and Their
           Application as Prebiotics

    • Authors: Bradley Saville, Sandra Saville
      Pages: 121 - 130
      Abstract: Xylooligosaccharide (XOS) and arabinoxylanoligosaccharide (AXOS) prebiotics represent the next generation of prebiotics. XOS and AXOS have been subject to nearly 30 years of in vitro and clinical trials, and advances in process technology have led to more widespread commercial availability. XOS and AXOS are based upon 5-carbon sugars, and their microbial utilization in the digestive tract is thus fundamentally different from prebiotics such as FOS, inulin, and resistant starch that are  oligomers/polymers of 6-carbon sugars connected by a bonds. Five carbon sugars and oligosaccharides connected by b bonds are more narrowly utilized; XOS and AXOS are especially effective for selective feeding of bifidobacteria, although they can also be used by some strains of lactobacilli and other bacteria. Clinical studies on XOS and AXOS report beneficial impacts upon digestive health, management of blood sugars and lipids, beneficial modification of immune markers, and benefits for laxation. These outcomes have typically been observed at 1 – 4 g/d, a lower dose than required for other prebiotics such as FOS and inulin. The lower dose requirement for clinical efficacy also provides advantages in terms of product formulation and more options for delivery of a clinically beneficial dose to consumers.

  • Antibacterial effect of Teucrium polium essential oil on Escherichia coli
           O157:H7 in probiotic kishk

    • Authors: Nava Sadrizadeh, Sima Khezri, Razzagh Mahmoudi, parvin Dehghan
      Pages: 131 - 140
      Abstract: Objective(s): Preservatives in foods are being with the aim of preventing bacterial growth and spoilage. Among them, essential oils (EO) are less dangerous for human together with exerting positive health effects on body. In recent years, probiotics have even shown improvements in food quality itself.Materials and Methods: Kishk samples treated with Teucrium polium EO (75 and 150 ppm) and Lactobacillus casei (108–109 cfu/mL) were stored up to 20 days at 4C and the effect of Kalpooreh EOs and probiotic fermentation on E. coli O157:H7 counts were investigated.Results: Kalpooreh EOs and probiotic fermentation reduced the number of E. coli during the cold storage time. The combination of Kalpooreh and probiotics showed stronger effect rather than individually added. Initial count of inoculated E. coli was 6.39 log CFU/g. EO compounds of Kalpooreh included Spathulenol, 1H-Cycloprop, Epizonaren and Bicyclo (3.1.1) hept-3-en-2-ol in 18.39, 9.62 and 6.76%, respectively. After 20 days storage at 4°C, the number of E. coli in probiotic and control samples decreased to 4.30 and 4.54 log CFU/g, respectively.Conclusion: According to the antibacterial effect of EOs extracted from plant and probiotic fermentation, it was predictable that they could decline the E. coli count especially in fermented dairy products. Also due to its probiotic nature, Kishk would bring numerous health advantageous for consumer.

  • Chitin extraction from lobster shell waste using microbial culture-based

    • Authors: Jayashree Chakravarty, Chen-Lu Yang, Jacob Daniel Palmer, Christopher John Brigham
      Pages: 141 - 154
      Abstract: Lobster shell waste was used as the source of raw material to produce chitin. Chemical and biological treatments of lobster shell waste were performed. The chemical method required the use of aqueous solutions of HCl and NaOH. Biological treatment included the use of co-cultures with a protease-producing bacterium, either Bacillus megaterium NH21 or Serratia marcescens db11, and an organic acid-producing bacterium Lactobacillus plantarum. The optimal culture conditions, including co-cultivation strategies and glucose concentrations, were identified to improve the efficiency of deproteinization and demineralization of lobster shells. Overall, the successive treatment with a combination of S. marcescens db11 and L. plantarum resulted in the best co-removal of CaCO3 and proteins and chitin yield (82.56%) from lobster shell biomass, with total deproteinization of 87.19% and total demineralization of 89.59%. The results from the proof-of-concept study described here suggest that microbial treatment may be an environmentally friendly alternative to the chemical method of chitin extraction.

  • Effects of probiotic cells on the mechanical and antibacterial properties
           of sodium-caseinate films

    • Authors: Esmail Abdollahzadeh, Seyed Mahdi Ojagh, Abbas Ali Imani Fooladi, Bahareh Shabanpour, Maryam Gharahei
      Pages: 155 - 162
      Abstract: Background and Objective: In this study, Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. casei viable cells were incorporated into sodium caseinate matrix to develop a probiotic-based film which can improve food safety.Material and Methods: The physical, mechanical and optical characteristics of the films were studied. The viability of L. acidophilus and L. casei in the films was determined during a period of 12 days. The antibacterial activities of the films were also investigated against Listeria monocytogenes on TSA medium at 4°C.Results and Conclusion: Results demonstrated that LAB cells remained viable during a storage period of 12 days. The incorporation of LAB cells into the film polymer had no significant effect on tensile strength (p>0.05) whereas it significantly improves the appearance of films. Indeed, samples covered with the LAB films displayed higher antilisterial activity than the control group on day 6 of preservation (p<0.05). These findings show that sodium caseinate films containing LAB cells can be used as a new effective packaging method for improving food safety.

  • Antimicrobial effects of chitooligosaccharide and chitin on Lactobacillus
           rhamnosus GG and Escherichia coli TG in vitro.

    • Authors: Otto Selenius, Jaakko Korpela, Seppo Salminen, Carlos Gómez-Gallego
      Pages: 163 - 172
      Abstract: Given the rising tendency of using insects as food, research regarding the food safety issues and health implications of edible insects is necessary. Insects have an external skeleton that is mainly composed of chitin – a nontoxic, fiber-like polysaccharide. Chitin and its derivative compounds can take part in maintaining healthy gut microbiota, by promoting or inhibiting the growth of several symbiotic bacteria depending on the chitinous substrate. Healthy composition of gut microbiota can prevent intestinal disease states and food digestion problems.We examined the effects of chitin and its derivative chitooligosaccharide (COS) on bacterial growth in vitro. 96 well plates were prepared with tryptone soy broth in 0.5 % - 0.05 % chitin and COS concentrations. Growth parameters of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Escherichia coli TG were obtained by measurement of optical density at 600 nm.COS’ enhanced the growth of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and inhibited the growth of Escherichia coli TG in the lowest tested concentration of 0.05 %. Chitin completely inhibited the growth of both bacteria in the lowest tested concentration of 0.1 %. Chito-oligosaccharides appear promising as potential prebiotic compounds associated to insect food products. However, the in vitro results should be verified in well-designed human studies.

  • The Use of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium animalis ssp.
           Lactis BB12, as Probiotics to Reduce the Risk of Food Poisoning in Minced

    • Authors: Jawad Kadhim Isa, Seyed Hadi Razavi
      Pages: 173 - 183
      Abstract: Background and Objective: For the first time, a detailed study of the antimicrobial metabolites produced by probiotics was carried out as an alternative natural way of chemical additives and to support consumer health. The study was undertaken using Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. Lactis BB12, as well as and antimicrobial products as protective cultures to reduce the risk of food poisoning in minced meat.Materials and Methods: Samples of minced meat were stored at 4°C. The microbiological analysis of probiotics and pathogens bacteria was performed in days 0, 3, 7 and 14. In these periods, pH parameter and antimicrobial activity of the probiotics were analyzed.Results and Conclusion: During the cold storage, the counts of inoculated pathogens in the minced meat samples in co-culture with each specific probiotic decreased at different levels; some had significant decrease (p≤0.05) and some others showed no significant change (p>0.05). The probiotics displayed the ability to produce antibacterial substances (lactic acid, diacetyl and hydrogen peroxide) at different concentrations in the minced meat samples with significant increases (p≤0.05) until the end of cold storage. Probiotics exhibited the ability to produce bacteriocins. Lactobacillus acidophilus as a probiotic showed a significant effect as bio-preservative against pathogens and was more effective when combined with Bifidobacterium BB12.
