High impact information on Cultured Milk Products

  • Some milk products fermented by specific bacterial strains have been shown to have rather moderate cholesterol-reducing properties [7].
  • METHODS: Three groups of 10 IL-10 KO mice were fed fermented milk products containing Lb salivarius 433118 at 10(9) CFU/ml, B infantis 35624 at 10(8) CFU/ml, and unmodified milk, respectively, for 19 weeks [8].
  • RESULTS: Frequent consumption of fresh juices, especially berry juices, and fermented milk products containing probiotic bacteria was associated with a decreased risk of recurrence of UTI: the OR for UTI was 0.66 (95% CI: 0.48, 0.92) per 2 dL juice [9].
  • RESULTS: The lactic acid in the fermented milk products did not lower the glycemic and insulinemic indexes [10].
  • Immunochemical study of triton X-100-soluble surface components of slime-forming, encapsulated Streptococcus cremoris from the fermented milk product viili [11].

Chemical compound and disease context of Cultured Milk Products

  • Lactobacillus kefiranofaciens, isolated from kefir grains, produces an extracellular polysaccharide when cultured, not only in PYG10 medium but also in a liquid medium containing a rice hydrolysate that had been previously degraded by treatment with a glucoamylase [12].
  • An efficient whole cell biotransformation process using Lactobacillus kefir was developed for the asymmetric synthesis of tert-butyl (3R, 5S) 6-chloro-dihydroxyhexanoate, a chiral building block for the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor [13].
  • A number of these isolates ferment only L-arabinose and gluconate and are similar to the species 'Lactobacillus desidiosus'. The DNA of these isolates, however, have 85-109% homology with 'L. caucasicus' NCDO 190 which is now regarded as L. kefir [14].
  • Eighty-four patients with bacterial vaginosis were examined in an open randomized trial, the aim of which was to define clinical results and the microbiological panorama after topical treatment for 1 week with either an acetic acid jelly (A), an estrogen cream (B), a fermented milk product (C) or metronidazole (D) [15].

Biological context of Cultured Milk Products

  • The characteristics of cell growth, lactic acid production, amino acid release and consumption by single-strain cultures of lactic acid bacteria (isolated from kefir grains), and by a multiple-strain kefir starter prepared from them, were studied [16].

Associations of Cultured Milk Products with chemical compounds


Gene context of Cultured Milk Products

  • Pasteurized kefir would induce both Th2 and Th1 responses [23].
  • METHODS: Five hundred millilitres of a fermented milk product (Cultura), containing live lactobacilli (La-5) and bifidobacteria (Bb-12), was given daily for 4 weeks to 41 UC and 10 patients with FAP, operated on with IPAA [24].
  • The commercial API ATB 32C identification kit was compared with a standard method for identifying 11 reference strains and 53 yeast strains isolated from fermented milk products [25].
  • Characterization of casein phosphopeptides from fermented milk products [26].
  • The effect of kefir on the activities of GSH-Px, GST, CAT, GSH and LPO levels in carbon tetrachloride-induced mice tissues [27].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Cultured Milk Products

  • In the past the preservation of the microbial populations present in the traditional Kefir grains was achieved by methods including freezing (Garrote et al. 1997), lyophilisation (Oberman & Libudzisz, 1998), air-drying (Kroger, 1993) and refrigeration (Marshall, 1993) [28].
  • Effects of a specially designed fermented milk product containing probiotic Lactobacillus casei DN-114 001 and the eradication of H. pylori in children: a prospective randomized double-blind study [3].
