Sangeeta Huidrom*, R. K. Singh, Narotam Sharma, Satish Nautiyal and Jyoti Shukla

ABSTRACT

Identification of probiotics bacteria with phenotypic technique is difficult, not reliable and efficient to classify them up to species level. Since probiotics effects are known to be strain specific, proper identification becomes important to associate a specific effect with a particular strain. Reliable identification of probiotic bacteria is a crucial task for its application in industries as well as for its safety and quality control. Correct nomenclature of bacterial strains should be labelled on the probiotic products so that the consumers are well informed about the beneficial effects of the particular probiotic strain. Classical methods of classification are influenced by physiological and environmental factors however molecular methods are not influenced by such factors and allow accurate identification results. Molecular methods are more reliable than the phenotypic characterization as molecular methods are DNA-based techniques which offer much to differentiate greater discriminatory power to differentiate individual strains.

Keywords: Lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, probiotics, molecular methods.
