Description: 

Developing countries have very diverse food consumption patterns and agricultural production systems but miss food processing technologies that meet the challenges of food safety, food security and nutrition problems. The aim of the present project is to study and preserve the LAB biodiversity of nem chua and tom chua, and to select and characterize functional starter culture strains which are capable to produce bacteriocins and high amounts of lactic acid such that the safety and shelf-life of these food products can be enhanced.
