Summary of "Biosurfactants from probiotic bacteria: A review."

Among microorganisms, bacteria are the main group of biosurfactant-producing organisms. Different types of bacteria including Pseudomonas sp., Acinetobacter sp., Bacillus sp. and Arthrobacter sp. are among the most commonly studied bacteria in the realm of scientific researches. However, due to the pathogenic nature of the producing organisms, the application of these compounds is restricted, therefore, not suitable for using in food-related industries. Given that probiotic bacteria impact human health, applying probiotics as non-pathogenic and safe organisms have gained much attention for the production of biosurfactants in recent years. The most biosurfactants obtained from probiotic bacteria has been described as related to a number of lactic acid bacteria (LAB). These types of biosurfactants are classified based on their structures as protein-carbohydrate complexes, lipids or fatty acids. The present paper seeks to provide comprehensive and useful information about the production of various kinds of biosurfactants by different probiotic bacteria. In addition, we have extensively reviewed their potential for possible future applications. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
