Abstract:

Sidra is a traditional sun-dried fish product of the North Eastern India. A total of 13 probiotic yeasts were isolated and and evaluated on the basis of morphological and biochemical characteristics and were examined for their antagonistic activity against various food borne pathogens i.e., Staphylococcus aureus, Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Bacillus cereus, Pectobacterium carotovorum, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas syringae, Enterococcus faecalis, Listeria monocytogenes, and Clostridium perfringens. Based on their maximum antagonistic potential against food borne pathogens two isolates i.e F3 and F6 were characterized using ITS gene sequencing and the isolates were identified as Debaroymyces hensanii F3 |MF588674|and Candida psychrophila F6 |MF616363|. These two isolates were further screened for their probiotic potential i.e acid and bile tolerane, autoaggregation and coaggregation, hydrophobicity, had been performed. This study affirms the potential of selected probiotic yeast strains as excellent probiotic candidates with exceptional therapeutic effect.
