Two species of Lactobacilli (
Lactobacillus rhamnosusand L. paracasie subsp. Paracasie
) were tested for their ability to inhibit
growth and mycotoxins production by three species of
F. graminearum, F. culmorumand F. proliferation
which are the main producers of mycotoxinsdeoxynivalenol, zearalenone and fumonisin B1, respectively.
was found to be effective in reducing the amount of toxins produced, although fungal growth was not affected. The
inhibition levels of Deoxynivalenol, Zearalenone and Fumonisin B1 production reached to 56.8, 73.0 and 76.5%, respectively.
showed the highest inhibitory activity against both fungal growth and mycotoxins production. It
completlysupressed mycelium growth of all the studied
species and consequently, no toxin was produced in the
presence of this bacterium.The obtained results confirm that, selected species of Lactic acid bacteria may be successfully used
as a biological control agent of food contamination with moulds and mycotoxins. This bio-preservation action has interesting
tecnological possibilities for a variety of fermented food and dairy products.
