SAWITZKI, Maristela Cortez et al. Lactobacillus plantarum AJ2 isolated from naturally fermented sausage and its effects on the technological properties of Milano-type salami. Ciênc. Tecnol. Aliment. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.3, pp.709-717. ISSN 0101-2061.

L. plantarum, strain AJ2, was isolated from naturally fermented sausage manufactured in the Southern region of Brazil and inoculated in Milano-type salami. The lactic culture exhibited the ability of growing in the product, decreasing pH in the first seven days of fermentation/maturation and the residual levels of nitrite and nitrate, as well as peroxide and TBARS values. The inoculated sausage had the highest intensity for brightness and red color, but did not present a difference in chemical composition and fatty acid composition, compared to the control.

Keywords : L. plantarum; technological properties; Milano-type salami.
