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.

    Lactic Acid Peel

    I was nervous about doing a chemical peel on my face without a specialist around so I bought one of the gentler formulas to use on my face. I was hoping just to exfoliate some of the dullness from my skin with this, but was surprised at just how much of a difference it made to my facial skin.My boyfriend who never noticed when I had 6" of hair cut off and my hair dyed from dark brown to red noticed actually asked me what I was doing to my skin the day after I first used this. He said I looked less tired and happier. So I was more than happy with the results.It not only made the skin look softer any other products I put on for a couple of days after using this seem to be absorbed better so it makes my moisturisers etc seem to work better too. My skin does go a little pink for a few hours after use so I would recommend it as best to use before bed time and to make sure you follow the directions carefully as I could see how it could burn your skin if left on... 5/5 wwax (Adelaide) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    If you are new to peels, this is a great one to start with.

    This peel is a great way to start if you are new to peels because its hard to go wrong with it and it will allow you to practice your technique before you get into peels that have a higher potential for damage. My initial experience with peels were at a salon and ( 20% glycolic). I read that Lactic acid was milder than glycolic so decided to go with the 50% Lactic to start with. I don't know the specifics of how this works but your face has to build up a tolerance level to the peels so thats why they recommend you start low and build up. We all want immediate results and some people have resistant skin that can get away with plunging in to the deeper peels right away but, personally, I don't want to find out that I am not one of them after the fact. Its my face, I can't hide it, so I'd rather be safe... 5/5 honestly (Houston, Tx) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Greatest Investment for mild acne prone, dark spots & problemed skin type

    Ladies and Gents, let me tell you that this product works extremely great!!!!! Please be advised that you should only use the alloted timeframe (up to 10 mins) that is listed otherwise, you may burn your skin. I was very iffy about purchasing this product only beceause I was under the impression it would not work as great as the one's the professionals use (for $80- $400) of dollars, SHAME on me. I saw improvement in as little as 24hrs. Did this on a Fri afternoon and saw results the next day around late evening time. I was a bit concerned about the paleness in my face (im african american) and thought it would take a few days to fade away and I was wrong. The dark spots are 3x's lighter with this product (SERIOUSLY). I will be doing another application this evening.

    0 5/5 Sheryl Merkel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intense Repair 88% Lactic Acid Peel Kit with Hyaluronic Acid Repair Cream and Fan Brush - Unbuffered Professional Grade (Misc.) This peel works very well to smooth skin's surface and diminish lines. I've even seen some improvement in my "marionette lines" which are hard to treat without plastic surgery. It's easy to use, though the instructions didn't specify if it could be put into a glass or plastic container for easier brush application. I used a clean, old ceramic cup. It does sting a little if you're not used to facials. Fanning your face helps. Be careful not to get to close to sensitive areas like lips or nostrils. I use a little on a cotton ball to treat my hands and knees, which have dark discolored skin. For the price, I will definitely order this again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2013
