Beer discovered two years ago onboard a shipwreck from the mid-1800s could possibly be recreated using living bacteria discovered in the brew, Finnish researchers announced last Thursday. According to Terhi Kinnunen of Reuters, Annika Wilhelmson from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland said that chemical analysis of the beer, which was recovered from a sunken ship near Aland islands in the Baltic Sea, has shown that it would be possible to make an alcoholic beverage similar to the...

Functional foods containing bacteria with beneficial health effects, or probiotics, have long been consumed in Northern Europe and are becoming increasingly popular elsewhere. To be of benefit, however, the bacteria have to survive in the very hostile environment of the digestive tract.

Lactobacillus casei is a species of genus Lactobacillus found in the human intestine and mouth. Since it produces lactic acid it helps with the propagation of desirable bacteria. This species is documented to have a wide pH and temperature range. It also improves digestion and reduces lactose intolerance and constipation. Most often L. casei is industrial, specifically for diary production. L. Casei is the dominant species of non-starter lactic acid bacteria present in ripening Cheddar...

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a species in the genus Lactobacillus. It is a homo-fermentative species, fermenting sugars into lactic acid, which grows readily at rather low pH values and has an optimum growth temperature of 37 °C. It occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract, mouth, and vagina. Some strains have probiotic characteristics. Strains are commercially used in many dairy products. It is part of the normal vaginal flora and the acid it produces can help...
