Abstract: The aim of this work was evaluation of fermentation characteristics of lactic acid bacteria isolated from Slovak bakery sourdough (twenty pure cultures PB1 – PB20). Gram stain, catalase test, carbon dioxide production from glucose, growth at 15 °C and 45 °C and test for fermentable sugar Api 50CH were used for identification of isolates. Three isolates were chosen for evaluation their fermentative characteristic during fermentation process. Amount of colony form units, pH value, titratable acidity and organic acid were established. Results of above mentioned research is design of new bakery starter culture consisted from the combination of all three identified strains.
Keywords: bread, fermentation, lactic acid bacteria, sourdough
