Bacillus coagulans is a lactic acid-forming bacterial species. Spore forming B. coagulans strains are used in some countries as probiotics for patients on antibiotics. There are number of organisms from different groups like Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Enterococcus, Bacillus, Streptococcus used as probiotics. Most of these lose their viability during harsh manufacturing processes and storage of food. Hence these require encapsulation via special processes. The unique property of B. coagulans of forming spores helps them to remain dormant stage. As recommended by APHA, in routine diagnosis for spoilage in canned foods, microbiological cultural procedures involve the use of primary recovery media and subculture media to identify spoilage bacteria and study its growth characteristics. Recovery media for aerobes generally include DTA (Dextrose Tryptone Agar) or DTB (Dextrose Tryptone Bromocresol Broth). Use of Cooked Meat Medium is recommended for recovery of anaerobic organisms.
recommended for cultivation and enumeration of Bacillus coagulans
