Despatched in 2 business days.


Through four editions, Lactic Acid Bacteria: Microbiological and Functional Aspects, has provided readers with information on the how's and why's lactic acid-producing fermentation improves the storability, palatability, and nutritive value of perishable foods. Thoroughly updated and fully revised, with 12 new chapters, the Fifth Edition covers regulatory aspects globally, new findings on health effects, properties and stability of LAB as well as production of target specific LAB. The new edition also addresses the technological use of LAB in various fermentations of food, feed and beverage, and their safety considerations. It features the detailed description of the main genera of LAB as well as such novel bacteria as fructophilic LAB and novel probiotics and discusses such new targets as cognitive function, metabolic health, respiratory health and probiotics.

Key Features:

In 12 new chapters, findings are presented on health effects, properties and stability of LAB as well as production of target specific LAB

Covers such novel bacteria as fructophilic LAB and novel probiotics

Presents new discoveries related to the mechanisms of lactic acid bacterial metabolism and function

Covers the benefits of LAB, both in fermentation of dairy, cereal, meat, vegetable and silage, and their health benefits on humans and animals

He is the author of over 90 journal articles and book chapters in the field of probiotic lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Dr. Vinderola received his degree (1997) and Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the National University of Litoral (Santa Fe, Argentina). He participated in the development of the first commercial probiotic cheese in Latin America (1999) and he was awarded (2011) as young researcher in Food Technology by the Argentinian National Academy of Exact, Physical and Natural Sciences. Dr. Arthur Ouwehand is Technical Fellow and research manager at DuPont Nutrition & Health in Kantvik, Finland. He has a research background in both academia and industry. His main interest is on functional foods, in particular, probiotics and prebiotics and their influence on the intestinal microbiota. He is active in the International Life Sciences Institute Europe, the International Dairy Federation, the International Probiotics Association and the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics. Dr. Ouwehand received his M.S. degree (1992) in cell biology from Wageningen University (the Netherlands) and his Ph.D. degree (1996) in microbiology from Goeteborg University (Sweden). In 1999, he was appointed as an Adjunct Professor in Applied Microbiology at the University of Turku (Finland), and he is the author of more than 250 journal articles and book chapters.
