“Beneficial health properties of probiotics have long been known, moreover, in many of the products subjected to fermentation contained so-called good bacteria. But these substances have not been added to such a popular product as beer,” — said the project author, student of the fourth year Alcini Chan. In the work, she continued, “I had to face several problems, chief of which was the content in beer hop acids, which prevent the growth and survival of probiotics”.
But as a result of experiments, which lasted about nine months, the author managed to increase and maintain the viability of the probiotic strain. “In this development was applied to bacteria of the lactic acid which to sustain uses the sugar contained in the must,” explained Chan. In her words, “the end product is obtained with a sharp and tart taste with alcohol content around 3.5%”. The author of the project also noted that “in 100 ml of the new beer contains about 1 billion probiotics, that is the dose recommends that the international scientific Association of probiotics and prebiotics”.
As noted by the representative of the NUS, “the research team has already filed a patent for the recipe for the production of similar Beers”.
