Special Issue Information
Lactic acid bacteria are one of the main microbiological groups involved in food. Because of their action, we have some of the main traditional foods, especially in the Mediterranean and other areas. Furthermore, products synthesized by these microorganisms can improve the safety of existing products. The metabolism of acid lactic acid bacteria is the key to many of these contributions. Omics can deepen the knowledge of these micro-organisms, and provide selection and characterization criteria, with a significant economic impact on the food sector.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions of articles that explore the selection and characterization of lactic acid bacteria, their occurrence in food, and the metabolic aspects that make them suitable for food use, especially their influence and effects, both positive and undesirable.
