Lactic Acid Bacteria, Microbiological and Functional Aspects

Creator: Seppo Salminen, Atte Von Wright, Arthur Ouwehand | 2004-07-23

The first edition of this international bestseller both predicted and encouraged vigorous study of various strains of lactic acid bacteria in order to substantiate much of what was known but never scientifically validated.

About this book
While lactic acid producing fermentation has been utilized to improve the storability, palatability, and nutritive value of perishable foods for a very long time, only recently have we begun to understand just why it works. The first edition of this international bestseller both predicted and encouraged vigorous study of various strains of lactic acid bacteria in order to substantiate much of what was known but never scientifically validated. The editors now feel compelled to offer a new edition in order to inform microbiologists, food technologists, nutritionists, clinicians, product development experts, and regulatory experts of what continues to be rapid progress in the field. Lactic Acid Bacteria: Microbiological and Functional Aspects, Third edition brings its readers up to date on this continually expanding branch of study incorporating the latest research and findings from all corners of the world. In keeping with the inclusive multidisciplinary philosophy of the original editions, the editors have recruited several more scientists of distinction -- bringing the total of contributors to 37. The bulk of the text has been completely rewritten with new chapters being added to cover recently evolved topics, such as mathematical modeling, vegetable fermentation, methods for analysis of the gut microbiota, and probiotics for fish. As in the two previous editions, the present volume gives a valuable overview of the present status of this rapidly expanding interdisciplinary area of research. Also, as before, special emphasis has been placed on the health aspects of lactic acid bacteria, although, as can be seen in the table of contents, other relevant applications are covered as well.

Lactic Acid

Creator: Frederic P Miller, Agnes F Vandome, John McBrewster | 2009-12-23

Lactic acid is chiral and has two optical isomers. One is known as L-(+)-lactic acid or (S)-lactic acid and the other, its mirror image, is D-()-lactic acid or (R)-lactic acid. L-(+)-Lactic acid is the biologically important isomer.

Publisher: Alphascript Publishing

About this book
Lactic acid (IUPAC systematic name: 2-hydroxypropanoic acid), also known as milk acid, is a chemical compound that plays a role in several biochemical processes. It was first isolated in 1780 by a Swedish chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele, and is a carboxylic acid with a chemical formula of oH6O3. It has a hydroxyl group adjacent to the carboxyl group, making it an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). In solution, it can lose a proton from the acidic group, producing the lactate ion CH3CH(OH)COO. It is miscible with water or ethanol, and is hygroscopic. Lactic acid is chiral and has two optical isomers. One is known as L-(+)-lactic acid or (S)-lactic acid and the other, its mirror image, is D-()-lactic acid or (R)-lactic acid. L-(+)-Lactic acid is the biologically important isomer.

About this book
In ancient times foods fermented with lactic acid bacteria already constituted an important part of the human diet. From then on, lactic acid bacteria have played an essential role in the preservation of food raw materials and have contributed to the nutritional, organoleptic and health properties of human food products and animal feed. The important function that lactic acid bacteria still have in the production of foods all over the world has resulted in a growing scientific interest in these micro-organisms by academic research groups as well as by industry. During the last 15 years, this research has been stimulated by major internationally coordinated funding efforts that have resulted in a variety of important scientific breakthroughs and have led to new applications. Written by international experts in the field, this issue of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek documents these developments with respect to genetics, metabolism and the application of lactic acid bacteria for industrial and potential medical applications. In this book the first complete genome of a lactic acid bacterium is presented. The book will serve as a reference source and also as an indispensable source of information for further development and exploration of the field.

    Excellent product from a class act company!

    This is the ONLY one I could find on Amazon that did not contain unnecessary, harmful chemicals. It's also the only company that seems to be completely forthright in their formulas. Beware of those selling 'pure' lactic acid. Run like hell to search them elsewhere and get the actual ingredient list. Then ask why they didn't list it- up front.I usually order with Prime but because of reasons mentioned, I placed the order with this company. Could not be more satisfied. Immediate acknowledgement of order. Followed by timely shipping, tracking, etc. (Timely is not truly fair...I ordered on Friday and received on Monday!)My order came well packaged. The product is in dark GLASS bottles with batch date. I am able to use with no problems as there is ZERO fragrance!Did I mention they are also very competitively priced, if not, cheaper?I will gradually replace all of my lotions, creams, etc. with this company's products.

    Excellent all-around!

    0 5/5 Natalie Murray - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ASDM Beverly Hills 40% Lactic Acid Peel, 1 Ounce (Health and Beauty) Excellent product! I can use this twice a week with proper preparation and post-peel care. Please note that I am a veteran peeler, so I don't suggest doing that for first-timers or those new to peels. Also, you can burn yourself putting this on thick (like with a brush). Be prepared with a neutralizing solution (baking soda & water works just fine). Also, ASDM has this post-peel "T" cream that can really help your skin recover quickly. They gave me a sample, which was a great gesture (thank you!).Great products from ASDM, fast shipping, and all for a great price. I definitely recommend! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 26, 2014

    Noticable results!

    I am in the process of trying to address some serious skin issues. Acne, scarred pores, ice pick scars, congested skin, etc. I have tried 20% salicylic acid peels before, but had no visible results, so I decided to try a 40% lactic acid peel since I felt I needed something a little stronger. I left the peel on for a total of 4 min for my first time. I did get burned fairly well between the folds of my nose and mouth and ended up with some scabbing, but nothing too major. I think I'm sensitive in those areas. I used a brush to apply it to my face and next time I will use a cotton pad around that area since it is more sensitive and use the brush for the rest of my face. (The brush holds more product than a cotton pad.) I am currently 3 days post peel and I am still dry and flaking. I can cover most of it up with tinted moisturizer (with SPF!) I can already notice a difference in depth on two scars and my skin tone seems more even. I'm excited for the flaking to stop so I can continue... 5/5 Kendra Given (Somewhere) - See all my reviews This review is from: ASDM Beverly Hills 40% Lactic Acid Peel, 1 Ounce (Health and Beauty) I am in the process of trying to address some serious skin issues.

    Great Size for the Price

    I bought this product to use as an acid peel for my face, hands and décolleté area however; this is not the seller's purpose for this product. I have found that it works great with some draw backs. First con, it does not come with any instructions; since this is not the intended purpose of the product you either need to know what you are doing or need to find instructions on the internet or from your doctor. The second drawback is that this product is quite a bit thinner than an acid peel intended for the skin, so the user needs to be careful to avoid applying too much and having the acid run to non-intended areas. Now for my experience: I've had several peels both from a doctor and a spa before attempting to do one myself at home so I knew what to expect, otherwise I may have been a little concerned. I wasn't sure what strength to start with so I first bought a 50% lactic acid and began with a low application time and gradually increased the time with each application... 5/5 Wendy Marr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
