The present study optimized the submerged fermentation conditions of Pediococcus pentosaceus Sanna 14 culture to improve bacteriocin yield by applying response surface methodology (RSM) and hybrid artificial neural networkgenetic algorithm (ANN-GA). A full factorial central composite design (CCD) of RSM was applied to assess the effect of four prin...

Are Lactic Acid Bacteria the bugs of the millennium? These surely are one of the highly pragmatic bugs of the millennium due to their diversity of metabolism, making them the most important group of bacteria in the production of traditional and modern fermented food products, their potential use in health and disease when used as probiotics or even...
Chapter
A group of Gram-positive, non-spore forming, non-motile, non-respiring bacteria produces variety of antimicrobial compounds i.e lactic acid, acetic acid, ethanol, formic acid, fatty acids, hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins; are considered to be Lactic acid bacteria (LAB). Due to the GRAS status and brad spectrum antibiotic nature, among the other...

Aspergillus sp. is known to produce cholesterol reducing drug-lovastatin. Lovastatin is a naturally occurring drug found in food such as red yeast rice (red rice koji or red fermented rice, red koji rice, red koji rice, anka, or ang-kak). Lovastatin (mevinolin) was the first hypocholesterolemic drug to be approved in 1987 by Food and Drug administr...

Objectives: Microalgae are unicellular photosynthetic organisms that assimilate lipids, which can be converted in to Biofuels. Microalgae help to mitigate carbon dioxide, because of their photosynthetic properties and utilize it to produce lipids. Microalgae biomass is a zero waste generation, as every part of the biomass is utilized to generate ot...

A quinine epoxide called terreic acid a secondary metabolite produced by the fungus Aspergillus terreus, is considered to be the “next generation antibiotic” due to its broad range antibiotic specificity. The antibiotic property of terreic acid was recognized more than 60 years ago. Previously many researchers were attempted different techniques an...

Objective: The present investigation aimed towards the strain improvement of lovastatin maximum yielding wild-type fungal strains (Aspergillus terreus-MTCC 11045, Aspergillus terreus-MTCC 11395 and Aspergillus flavus-MTCC 11396) through physical mutagenesis by applying UV random mutations. Methods: Revival of fungal cultures on PDA plates followed...

Fluoride is a naturally occurring element in water systems and enters food chain mostly through drinking water. The WHO permissible limit of fluoride in water is 1.0 mg/l. At < 1.0 mg/l, it inhibits dental caries, at > 1.0 mg/l causes molting of teeth, lesion of endocrine glands, thyroid, liver and other organs. At still higher concentration (3-6 m...

Traditional oriental fermented foods namely soy sauce, miso, vinegar, red rice vinegar, pickled tofu and Ang-kak were becoming increasingly popular in different parts of India and shall be used for isolation of hypolipidemic agent, lovastatin producing representative fungi. Existing food grade (GRAS) fungi, Monascus sp were known to produce lovasta...

Attempts were made to prepare synbiotic yoghurt-cheese having functional attributes of both prebiotics and probiotics. Firstly, the conditions for the preparation of prebiotic yoghurt were optimized in order to determine the optimal level of prebiotic ingredients - raftiline (the fat replacer), raftilose (the sugar replacer), oat fiber and honey as...

Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is a computerized program designed to simulate the process in which the Central Nervous System (CNS) functions. In a recent time ANN being increasingly used in biotechnology and pharmaceutical research to predict the non-linear relationship between casual factors and response variables. ANN has a remarkable ability t...

Aspergillus terreus, Aspergillus oryzae and Monascus sp are known to produce cholesterol reducing drug- Lovastatin. It is presently available only as a drug with some after-effects. Scanty research work has been reported on the production and optimization of lovastatin based fermented foods by using underutilized substrates. Hitherto, no food syste...
