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.

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 Level 1 Peel

    This is a review for the 35% Lactic Acid peel. I have sensitive skin that is dry, but also acne prone. I have some hyperpigmentation from past blemishes and hormonal birth control and the beginning of fine lines around my mouth.I have used this product twice, once a week for the past two weeks. I follow the acne.org method, but the night before and the day of the peel I give it a break so my skin doesn't get too dry. Before I apply the peel I cleanse with Cetaphil and wait about a half hour until my skin is bone dry. The peel is in gel form, and application is easy with either a synthetic brush or cotton pad. I have experienced little discomfort while it was on my face, and then only at the sides of my nose. I left it on for 2 minutes the first time, and five minutes the second time. I experienced absolutely no frosting of any kind. I neutralize with a baking soda paste after rinsing with copious amounts of water, and follow with a thick layer of Vanicream, and... 5/5 A.

    Not awesome, not great - just OK

    I'm a mission to clear up adult acne and improve my complexion and reduce some fine lines. I have now spent over 40 hours on various websites (incl Amazon) researching peels and zit treatments until my eyeball are ready to pop. I'm mid 40's, very fair, have some sun damage, average pores, oily T-zone, and am allergic to everything (e.g. the "super sensitive skin which breaks out in mini-blisters the moment it doesn't like something so have to take daily allergy meds" kind of skin).I'm currently testing out acne patches - have had some success, you can read my reviews for details. Medicine - meh, not so much luck, barely worth mentioning. I'm now onto chemical peels. I've had 2 light peels over the past decade (at a spa) and both had nice results. Being that I'm going the "at home" route now AND have skin issues, I opted for this light 35% version first.

This is the ONLY body lotion I recommend to anyone, and you all know that I am not paid by any company for my reviews, so I am 100% honest. If you have a Costco membership, buy it there. It is 17.00 at Costco. If not, buy it here. It is well worth the money and every plastic Surgeon and dermatologist I know loves it as well. I saw immediate results with this baby. I have freckles on my body and my skin isn't as hydrated as I would like, but with this lotion, its constantly turning over my skin cells and my skin has never looked better!

    0 5/5 Stacy G. (Maryland, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Philosophy Miracle Worker Lactic Acid Cleanser-8 oz. (Misc.) I have been a true Philosophy Girl for over 12 years now & up until recently I used Purity at night to remove makeup and Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash in the mornings. I picked up a sample of this at my local mall (I was very interested it was both a lactic acid cleanser & a mask!) I gave it a try once & I was sold! I have combination skin, oily on parts & dry on others. This balanced my skin perfectly! I use it at night after removing my makeup with a little Purity or a facial cleansing wipe, leave it on for 5 minutes three times a week, the other days I just use with my Clarisonic & rinse. My skin looks & feels so soft and my pores haven't been so small in ages. Sometimes I use it in the morning too depending on my skin's needs. I highly recommend this cleanser, the entire Miracle Worker line is amazing, but this cleanser is definitely a true Miracle Worker!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 22, 2013
