Description

Through four editions, Lactic Acid Bacteria: Microbiological and Functional Aspects, has provided readers with information on the how’s and why’s lactic acid-producing fermentation improves the storability, palatability, and nutritive value of perishable foods. Thoroughly updated and fully revised, with 12 new chapters, the Fifth Edition covers regulatory aspects globally, new findings on health effects, properties and stability of LAB as well as production of target specific LAB. The new edition also addresses the technological use of LAB in various fermentations of food, feed and beverage, and their safety considerations. It features the detailed description of the main genera of LAB as well as such novel bacteria as fructophilic LAB and novel probiotics and discusses such new targets as cognitive function, metabolic health, respiratory health and probiotics.

Key Features:

  • In 12 new chapters, findings are presented on health effects, properties and stability of LAB as well as production of target specific LAB
  • Covers such novel bacteria as fructophilic LAB and novel probiotics
  • Presents new discoveries related to the mechanisms of lactic acid bacterial metabolism and function
  • Covers the benefits of LAB, both in fermentation of dairy, cereal, meat, vegetable and silage, and their health benefits on humans and animals
  • Discusses the less-known role of LAB as food spoilers
  • Covers the global regulatory framework related to safety and efficacy

He has served in NDA Panel (evaluation of eg novel foods and health claims) and several working groups of the European Food Safety Authority and other international committees including ILSI Europe and International Dairy Federation. Professor Salminen received his M.S. degree (1978) in food science from Washington State University, Pullman, his M.Sc. degree (1979) in food chemistry and technology from the University of Helsinki, Finland, and his Ph.D. degree (1982) in biochemistry and toxicology from the University of Surrey, UK. He is a member of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters and the president elect of the International Scientific Association of Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).

Atte von Wright is the Emeritus Professor of Food Biotechnology at the University of Eastern Finland. He graduated in 1975 from the University of Helsinki, majoring in General Microbiology, obtained his Licentiate of Philosophy degree from the same University in 1978, and his PhD degree from the University of Sussex, UK. His research interest include food toxicology and hygiene, molecular biology of lactic acid bacteria, probiotics and prebiotics and natural bioactive compounds. Besides his University career he has worked as a research group leader in Valio Finnish Coopersative dairies' Association and in the Technical Research Centre of Finland.
