Use of Lactobacillus sakei as bioprotective starter in fermented sausages

The screening of all the isolated strains for the production of bacteriocins, resulted, among others, in 6 strains of Lactobacillus sakei (denominated as I151, I152, I153, I154, I155 and I156) showing antibacterial activity towards L. monocytogenes.

The results of the laboratory experiments aiming to determine firstly the technological properties and secondly the optimal conditions for the production of bacteriocins suggested that 3 strains of Lactobacillus sakei could be used as potential bio-protective cultures. Pilot scale industrial trials confirmed the ability of the strain to be used as potential bio-protective starter for the production of safe sausages with the desired physicochemical and sensorial characteristics.

Thus the strain of Lactobacillus sakei will be used by the industrial partners of the consortium as bioprotective starter in the industrial production of sausages. However it should be pointed out that complementary research should take place in order to optimise the bio protective starter. In this optimisation process other microorganisms from the Central Collection of strains may be used.

The partners intent to promote the result with the intention of finding new potential industrial partners to whom they can offer consultancy services.
