Table olives containing probiotic microorganisms

SCHEDA BREVETTO

Abstract:

The invention relates to table olives enriched with probiotic microorganisms, in particular lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, food products containing them and a method for their preparation. The olives and food products of the invention provide an amount of microorganisms sufficient to exert a beneficial action on the gastro-intestinal tract and are particularly advantageous whenever administration of probotic food products of animal origin, in particular milk derivatives, is not possible.

Advantages:

However, dairy product consumption may be limited due to allergies or intolerances to milk and derivatives thereof. Also known is the difficulty of introducing bifidobacteria-largely used in probiotics-in fermented milk products, due to their strain-related sensibility to milk-fermenting bacteria, pH, temperature and oxygen concentration (Gobbetti M. etal.
It should also be pointed out that all the above-mentioned products must be consumed rapidly after opening.

Application field:

PRESERVING, e.g. BY CANNING, MEAT, FISH, EGGS, FRUIT, VEGETABLES, EDIBLE SEEDS; CHEMICAL RIPENING OF FRUIT OR VEGETABLES; THE PRESERVED, RIPENED, OR CANNED PRODUCTS;

FOODS, FOODSTUFFS, OR NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES, THEIR PREPARATION OR TREATMENT, e.g. COOKING, MODIFICATION OF NUTRITIVE QUALITIES, PHYSICAL TREATMENT;

PREPARATIONS FOR MEDICAL, DENTAL, OR TOILET PURPOSES;
