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.

    Great product, but use wisely

    I have had chemical peels at spas and it doesn't come close to the results that this product does. It does leave my skin soft afterwards. I recommend using it once, nor more than twice a week as you want to allow new skin cells to generate. It is so simple to use, but it's very important to be careful on how you prep your skin and how long you leave it on. I don't have sensitive skin normally, but there have been some times where I have left the peel on too long, or have exfoliated too hard prior to application, and caused my face to have red blotches and eventually course skin a few days later due to tiny scabs from the burning of the skin. It scrubs off a few days after that, but if you do it right, you won't get those results. Out of the several times I have used this, this only happened a couple times and it was simply due to leaving it on too long or extensive exfoliation prior to application. I personally like to do this on a Friday night so that I don't apply any makeup the... 4/5 Tracy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Lactic Acid 50% Gel Peel 1 oz - Enhanced with Kojic Acid & Bearberry Extract (Professional Chemical Peel) (Health and Beauty) I normally don't give out reviews. As a Ph.D., I'm very skeptical about any claims made without scientific proof and data to support the claims. However, I decided to try this product based on the reviews I read on Amazon. After two applications, nothing short of amazing. My melasma spots are pretty much gone, and I've been living with them for years. Based on this, I felt compelled to give a review of this product. Pretty amazing product. Best way to describe it: a $1000 dermatologist visit in a $30 box. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 26, 2013

    Worked wonders on zits and scars!

    I decided to come out of the shadows on my amazon account to write a review for this product - that's how amazing it is!I'm in my early 20s and started suffering from breakouts after barely ever having a zit in my teenage years, save for one once in a blue moon. Now, I have patches of pimples around my chin and on my cheeks. I had no idea what to do - I changed my skincare routine, started using natural soaps and toners and moisturizers, as well as a Clarisonic Mia face cleansing brush, with few results. I also began taking fish oil and vitamin supplements, but that did not work either. A few months ago I resigned myself to the idea that my skin just wouldn't be as clear as it used to be, and began resorting to foundation to cover up the breakouts.However, I randomly stumbled upon this product on Amazon one day.

    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?)

This review is from: Intense Repair 88% Lactic Acid Peel with Free Fan Brush - Unbuffered Professional Grade - Revive Sun Damaged Skin Quickly (Misc.) I've tried numerous peels (jessners, tca10-30%) glycolic 40, and other brands of lactic in 30%. I've seen results with all of them but none that have targeted my post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation like this one! I applied it and waited the entire 10mins( not recommended for first time users). The next morning after showering, I noticed a thick layer of skin had peeled on my cheeks and t-zone. Slight peeling around neck area. I mean it shed like snake skin. I like the fact that the solution had a thicker consistency than most peels. Really helped with ingrown hair bumps...

    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.

This review is from: Lactic Acid 50% Gel Peel, 30ml (Professional) (Health and Beauty) 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 MD Formulations My Personal Peel System ( 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.

    The quality you need for a peel, very recommended!

    0 5/5 Thick Southern Accent "Christina Gunn" (Montana USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Fan Brush Boar 8" Glycolic Lactic TCA Serum Mask (Misc.) It is a small brush. If you're using a high number peel I would recommend getting a larger brush to prevent too much peel being left at the beginning of the brush stroke and not enough at the end.The quality however is excellent. I highly recommend. You want the best when putting a peel on your face, this is it. The handle is a light, strong, thick plastic, it doesn't feel cheap. The brush is very fine and soft. The medal connector (you can see in photo) is sturdy. It doesn't wiggle or move like cheaper brushes.It came packaged in a cushioned envelope. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 31, 2014

    I am impressed!!

    If you are like me I look at the Lactic Acid Face Peel, and really do not want to put that on my face. Well because of that I have put this review off for as long as I could. I committed and I will do it. Ok now the pep talk is over!I wanted to learn something about the lactic acid peel, so I found this on buzzle.com HERE:Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that is mild and hence suitable for sensitive skin. Lactic acid peels serve many purposes which include regulating the pH of the skin, removing impurities from the skin, cleansing the pores, removing dead cells, etc. If you have heard of glycolic acid peels, then you must know that it is similar to a lactic acid peel as both are alpha hydroxy acids. The only difference is that glycolic acid is stronger as compared to lactic acid, and hence cannot be used by people who have very sensitive skin.Read more at Buzzle: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/benefits-of-lactic-acid-peel.htmlBenefits... 5/5 lauras930 - See all my reviews, November 13, 2014

    This changed my life!!!!!!!

    0 5/5 Zunilda - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dr Song 50% Lactic Acid Gel Peel (Professional) (Misc.) This product has changed my life!!!!!! When I was younger I used to be builled all my life because I suffer from pcos and I had extremely bad dark acne scars | pigmentation underneath my chin. I went to doctors and they charged thousands and I was like oh heck no! So I had to death with my ugly skin for years. My confident level was none. Years later my husband who always supportive told me that he saw on dr oz that lactic peels helps eliminate scars and lighten skin. So I checked here on Amazon , I saw this, purchased it because it was affordable. I used it 4x a week And within 2 months *this bottle last for 2 months * it elimated all my dark spots! scars and lightened my chin! I also after i finished applying this, i put coconut oil under my chin because coconut oil helps restore skin. I feel like crying I still can't believe it! I am so confident I no longer have to put concealer under my chin. I recommend this to everyone!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 3, 2014
