Analysis of Antibiotic Resistance of the Probiotic Bacteria Found in Commercial Food Products
The Lactobacillus is a species of bacteria with many different
types. These probiotic bacteria routinely live in our body systems
without causing disease. Lactobacillus, which is used for the
treatment of diarrhea, can be found in some fermented foods,
including cheese, beer, yoghurt, cocoa, and animal feed.
The Lactobacillus is a genus of Gram-positive, non-sporing, non-respiring
cocci or rods, and can form spirals or spheres under certain conditions.
There are many strains of lactic acid bacteria and are commonly
used to process and ferment food. The consumers’ intake
contains probiotics mainly in the form of
dietary foods and supplements.
The Lactobacillus bacteria are the most important probiotic
known to have beneficial effects on the human gastro-intestinal tract.
Moreover, dark chocolate, microalgae, kimchi, tempeh and kombucha
tea are also sources of Lactobacillus bacteria A number of health benefits
have been claimed from probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus,
Bifidobacterium spp., and Lactobacillus casei.
Because of the potential health benefits, these organisms
are increasingly incorporated into dairy foods The Lactobacillus
bacteria have a positive effect on health when its concentration is high enough.
These foods can have a positive effect on the digestion and can prevent
unwanted bacteria from spreading infections or diseases.
Consumers are very well aware of the fact that fermented products
contain living organisms, provided the fact that dairy products
such as curd have a healthy record.
