Safety assessment of industrial strains, starters and probiotics

Issue 2 2010  •  12 May 2010  •  François Bourdichon, Food Safety Centre, Danone Corporate

Probiotics are used to bring health benefits to consumers through foods and are defined as “live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host[Ref 18].” Commercialised all around the world since the early 1920’s, mostly focused on Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus genera, in the last fifteen years there has been a rising awareness reported in scientific literature on putative adverse events caused by strains belonging to this genera, if not adverse events supposedly caused by probiotic prophylaxis, e.g. the recent Dutch probiotic prophylaxis study on severe acute pancreatitis[Ref 6]. Saccharomyces boulardii is the sole probiotic yeast strain widely used nowadays, isolated from the fruit of litchi and mangosteen in Indochina in 1923. Marketed and evaluated as a drug, its use differs from other probiotic strains, considered as part of the food diet, with different efficacy and safety evaluation[Refs 20,25,45].

The food sector and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: A 10 year overview

Issue 1 2010, Past issues  •  22 February 2010  •  Adrian J. Charlton, Food and Environment Research Agency, Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs

For many years, NMR spectroscopy was largely overlooked by the food industry. Maybe this was understandable. The instruments were expensive, the skills required to operate them could at best be described as specialist and there wasn’t a broad understanding of the way in which the technology could be applied within the industry. I joined the Food Science Group at Fera (then the Central Science Laboratory) in 1999. NMR spectroscopy was mainly used for measuring isotopes to check the authenticity of wines and fruit juice, whilst an archaic bench top contraption was used for fat and water measurements.
