Abstract

Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms with certain characteristics such as survival under gastrointestinal conditions, adhesion to intestinal surface and different functions which result in several health benefits to host. With this regards, this study aimed to isolate Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) from sourdough and human feces as two different environments and to test their potential probiotic functions. In total nine distinct isolates were assessed with several probiotic functions such as in vitro adhesion to human colon cells, antimicrobial activities and survival under harsh gastrointestinal conditions. In general, distinct strains showed strong antimicrobial activity against the pathogenic and fungal strains tested in this study. Importantly, the adhesion levels to HT29 cells were determined between 0.29 % and 9.54% and Lactobacillus paracasei F7B showed the highest adhesion. All isolates tolerated the bile salt after 24 h and the infant feces isolates showed good survival characteristics at pH 4.
