Abstract

Three batches of Cheddar cheeses (Batch 1, with only starter lactococci; Batch 2, with lactococci and Lactobacillus acidophilus 4962, Lb. casei 279, Bifidobacterium longum 1941; Batch 3, with lactococci and Lb. acidophilus LAFTI® L10, Lb. paracasei LAFTI® L26, B. lactis LAFTI®B94) were manufactured in triplicate to study the survival and influence of probiotic bacteria on proteolytic patterns and production of organic acid during ripening period of 6 months at 4°C. All probiotic adjuncts survived manufacturing process and maintained their viability of >7.5 log10 cfu g -1 at the end of ripening. The number of lactococci decreased by one to two log cycles, but their counts were not significant..
