Postbiotics Production of Candidate-Probiotic Lactiplantibacillus plantarum AC131 with Renewable Bio Resources

Life (Basel). 2023 Oct 2;13(10):2006. doi: 10.3390/life13102006.


Lactiplantibacillus plantarum is a versatile specie, well known as a producer of lactic acid (LA) and other metabolites with biotechnological significance. The present work characterizes growth and lactic acid production of the candidate-probiotic strain L. plantarum AC131, from Bulgarian white brined cheeses. Different nutritional media with ingredients from renewable resources-reduced sugars from dried distillers’ grains with soluble (DDGS) and waste waters from the water-vapor distillation of Bulgarian Rosa alba L. and Rosa damascena Mill. essential oil-were assessed. The results obtained showed significant LA production (up to 95% conversion) in modified MRS broth with reducing sugars from DDGS hydrolysates. The addition of R. alba L. and R. damascena Mill. distillation effluents stimulated the growth and biological activity of postbiotics produced by L. plantarum AC131. In both experimental approaches, a statistically significant inhibition (from 20 to 60%) of E. coli HB 101 growth was found during 24 h exposure and a variable effect on the biofilm formed. In conclusion, reducing sugars from DDGS hydrolysates can be successfully used as a carbon source for lactic acid production. In the case of fermentation without pH control, the process is product inhibited, while with pH control, nearly full conversion was achieved. Postbiotics produced during the process of fermentation showed a variety of biological activity and inhibitory effects on the growth of Escherichia coli HB 101.
