Abstract:

Probiotics are a group of microorganisms that when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. They build up health effects by number of ways viz. improving immune function, enhancing proper digestion, fighting against pathogens etc. Various species are proved to possess probiotic properties. Most important is that the selected probiotic strain must be able to survive in human gut, as the gut offers a difficult environment. In the present study, lactic acid bacteria was isolated from curd and its probiotic potentials were evaluated. Studies were carried out to isolate and identify microorganisms for probiotic use. Selection of strains included various criteria such as agreement with biosafety aspects, viability during storage, tolerance to low pH, tolerance to bile salt and antimicrobial activity. Using fruit juice, its shelf life was determined in order to estimate the survival ability. It was evidently proved that the cultures remained viable over a period of time and inhibited the growth of pathogenic growth. Extensive studies on mechanisms of probiotic activities may enable their new medical applications.
