Abstract

Probiotic beverages made from cereals become interesting in the recent food industries. In this contribution, a fermented teff-based probiotic beverage was produced using the whole grain teff flour and co-culture strains of Lactiplantibacillus plantarum (LPA6) and Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus GG (LCGG). Then, the effect of 25 days of refrigerated storage on cell viability (LPA6 and LCGG), and contents of sugars, organic acids, and titratable acidity (TA), as well as pH values were examined. Furthermore, pathogenic microorganisms, hygiene indicators, and sensory tests of the beverage were analyzed. Presumptive cell counts of LPA6 and LCGG were observed to decrease throughout refrigerated storage. Glucose, lactic acid, maltose, and acetic acid contents were significantly (p < 0.05) increased over storage time. Also, pH reduction and TA increment were observed in storage time. Examined pathogenic microorganisms and hygiene indicators were not detected in the beverage. Sensory analysis of the beverage after 10 days of refrigerated storage was accepted by the panelists. Novelty Impact Statement: Throughout refrigerated storage of teff-based probiotic beverage sugars and organic acids were produced. Sensory attributes of the newly produced teff-based probiotic beverage were accepted by the panelist after 10 days of refrigerated storage. The pH of the teff-based probiotic beverage became more acidic throughout 25 days of refrigerated storage.
