Title:
Changes in membrane fatty acids of Lactobacillus helveticus during vacuum drying with sorbitol 
Abstract:
Aims: To examine changes in membrane fatty acid profile attributed to the physiological adaptation of Lactobacillus helveticus during vacuum drying. Methods and Results: The viability and membrane integrity of the cells after vacuum drying were measured by plate counts and DNA fluorescence dyes. The physiological adaptation of cells dried in the presence of sorbitol was observed by determining changes in membrane fatty acid composition using gas chromatography. Results showed that viability a...    »
