Abstract

In this study, the effects of single probiotics Lacticaseibacillus casei CGMCC1.5956 (L. casei 56) and Levilactobacillus brevis CGMCC1.5954 (L. brevis 54) and their combination on the quality of yogurt as fermented milk were investigated. The main finding was that binary probiotics might promote L. brevis 54 to produce l-glutamic acid and pyruvic acid thereby enhancing probiotic growth and antioxidant capacity. Glycine, serine and threonine metabolism and biosynthesis of amino acids might be considered the main reasons for the binary probiotics promoted the growth of L. brevis 54. A total of 65 volatile flavor substances were identified, including carbonyl compounds, alcohols, aldehydes, and acids. Differences in the metabolic profiles and pathways of volatile and nonvolatile flavor substances between single and binary probiotic bacteria were identified by metabolomics. A mapping of the action of single and binary probiotic flora was provided, which could guide the development of yogurt with unique flavor, high probiotic content, and strong antioxidant capacity.
