Abstract:

A total of seven microorganisms were isolated from different probiotic sources. The nicotine reducing activity of isolates was tested by general analytical techniques. Amongst them isolates BC6 and BC7 possess maximum nicotine reducing activity therefore it was selected for further investigation. Both isolates could utilize up to 1 g/l nicotine as the sole source of carbon and nitrogen, and optimum nicotine reducing activity obtained at pH 7 by inoculating with inoculum size of 1 McFarland standard units. After morphological and biochemical characterization and according to information given on leaflet of probiotic product, isolate BC6 and BC7 were identified as Lactobacillus sporogenes and Lactobacillus casei, respectively.
