Title:
Protective effects of sorbitol during the vacuum drying of Lacotbacillus helveticus: an FT-IR study 
Abstract:
Although the addition of sugars to drying media is a general practice for the viability improvement of lactic acid starter cultures during drying, the mechanism behind the protective effects is not clear. To gain insight into the protective mechanisms of sugars, Lactobacillus helveticus was dried by vacuum drying in the presence of sorbitol, whose protective effects were shown in our previous study (Santivarangkna et al. Lett Appl Microbiol 42:271--276, 2009). In this study, membrane phase trans...    »
