Title: USE OF PROPIONIC BACTERIA FOR PRODUCING PROPIONIC ACID AND/OR PROPIONATES IN THE COLON
Abstract:
The invention concerns the use of propionic bacteria selected according to their low propensity to autolysis and their resistance to bile salts to obtain a current food composition or a dietetic composition of a medicine absorbable by a human or animal, prepared in such a way that the bacteria are well protected at least partially against gastric acidity, containing at least 106 cell/grams of said bacteria, capable of stimulating and increasing significantly the synthesis of propionic acid and/or propionate and, as the case may be, acetic acid and/or acetate at the colon by anaerobic bacterial fermentation.
