Effect of traditional starter cultures on quality of cheese

Kayagil, Fulya
In this study, the physico-chemical chances occurring in white cheese and possible effects of starter culture combinations to the ripening period during 30 days storage examinated. A total of thirty six lactic acid bacteria were isolated from a cheese made witohout using starter culture. For identification gram staining, catalase, gas production and coagulation tests were performed. For determination of species API50 CH (BioMérieux) and partial 16S rDNA gene sequence analysis were used. Four cheese were produced, one by using commercial starter culture [Lyofast CMS (Lactococcus lactic subs. lactis and Lactococcus lactis subs. cremoris)]as control the other three by using different combinations of isolates [Lactococcus lactic subs. lactis (13%) +Lactobacillus brevis (40%)+Lactobacillus paracasei (47%); Lactococcus lactic subs. lactis (36%)+Lactobacillus paracasei (64%); Lactococus lactis subs. lactis (24,5%)+ Lactobacillus paracasei (28,5%) + Lactobacillus brevis (47%)] Cheese were ripened in 15% saline solution 4 C for 30 days.Samples were taken from each treatment and analyzed on 2nd,15th and 30th days Sensory ,microbiological and chemical properties of the cheese preparations as pH, acidity ,salt,fat,moisture,protein contents during storage period were determined. In this respect effect of using different starter culture combinations on quality of Turkish white chee was determined and Lactococcus lactis subs. lactis(13%)+Lactobacillus brevis (40%)+Lactobacillus paracasei(47%) combination was found as the best and can be suggested as ideal combination for white cheese production.


Behaviour and control of listeria innocua during manufacture and storage of Turkish white cheese
Öztürkoğlu, Şebnem; Gürakan, Candan; Department of Food Engineering (2004)
Growth and survival of L. innocua and TAC in artificially inoculated Turkish White Cheese during manufacturing and storage periods, with respect to different level of contamination of L. innocua were investigated. Cheese products were manufactured by the short-set procedure in pilot-plant-sized vats, as in AOÇ dairy factory. Pasteurized cow̕s milk was inoculated with L. innocua for obtaining the initial loads of 3.84 and 7.12 log CFU/ml. Bacterial load of inoculated milk, whey, post-ripened curd and post-sa...
Identification of serotype specific dna marker for salmonella typhimurium by rapd-pcr method
Aksoy, Ceren; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
This study was performed for the identification of specific DNA marker using RAPD-PCR (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) method for serotype Salmonella Typhimurium which is one of the most prevalent serotype causing food poisining all over the world. The Primer 3 (RAPD 9.1), 5̕-CGT GCA CGC-3ء, was used in RAPD-PCR with 35 different Salmonella isolates. 12 of them were serotype Salmonella Typhimurium and 23 of them were belonging to other six different serotypes. Accordingly, two different 300 bp and 700 bp ...
Biochemical and genetic characterization of halobacterium salinarium strain isolated from Tuz Lake in central Anatolia
Çakıcı, Özgür; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Department of Biochemistry (2004)
In this study, a halophilic archaea Halobacterium salinarium TG13 which is isolated from Tuz Lake in Central Anatolia was characterized biochemically and genetically. Halobacterium salinarium DSM3754 and Halobacterium salinarium S9 strains were used as a reference strain through the experiments. In biochemical characterization; total protein profiles of strains was compared by using 1D SDS PAGE. Total protein profile of the isolated strain has shown differences. The SDS-PAGE profile of the purified purple m...
Characterization and purification of a bacteriocin produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris
Dündar, Halil; Bozoğlu, Faruk; Department of Biotechnology (2006)
In this study, a new bacteriocin isolated from a Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris strain was purified to homogeneity by pH mediated cell adsorption-desorption, solid phase extraction with Amberlite XAD-16, cation-exchange chromatography and hydrophobic interaction chromatography. The purification resulted in an electrophoretically pure protein that was smaller than 6 kDa as judged by SDS-PAGE. The bacteriocin was found to be very hydrophobic and cationic and could be adsorbed by synthetic calcium s...
Aspects of silver tolerance in bacteria: infrared spectral changes and epigenetic clues
Gurbanov, Rafig; Ozek, Nihal S.; Tunçer, Sinem; Severcan, Feride; Gözen, Ayşe Gül (2018-05-01)
In this study, the molecular profile changes leading to the adaptation of bacteria to survive and grow at inhibitory silver concentration were explored. The profile obtained through infrared (IR)-based measurements indicated extensive changes in all biomolecular components, which were supported by chemometric techniques. The changes in biomolecular profile were prominent, including nucleic acids. The changes in nucleic acid region (1350-950 cm(-1)) were encountered as a clue for conformational change in DNA...
