Scholarcy highlights

  • It has been proposed that the consumption of lactic acid bacteria capable of binding or degrading foodborne carcinogens would reduce human exposure to these deleterious compounds
  • The eight strains tested were obtained from different ecological niches
  • The strains exhibited different degrees of aflatoxin binding; the strain with the highest AFB1 binding was L. casei L30, which bound 49.2% of the available aflatoxin
  • Exposure of the bacterial cells to bile significant increased aflatoxin B1 binding and the differences between the strains was reduced
