Isolation, Identification and Screening of Potential Probiotic Bacteria in Milk from South African Saanen Goats

Isolation, Identification and Screening of Potential Probiotic Bacteria in Milk from South... This study aimed to evaluate lactic acid bacteria isolates from Saanen goats’ milk for probiotic attributes, thereby determining their potential as direct-fed microbials for goats. Isolates were identified using API 50CH system, 16S rDNA sequencing and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry. All 17 isolates obtained were identified as Lactobacillus plantarum except one identified as Pediococcus acidilactici. Four isolates identified as L. plantarum (Accession numbers KJ026587.1, KM207826.1, KC83663.1 and KJ958428.1) by at least two of the techniques used and isolate 17 differently identified by all the methods used were selected as representatives and then screened for probiotic properties. These isolates displayed phenotypic probiotic attributes including tolerance to acid and bile salts, ability to adhere to intestines and possession of antagonistic activities against Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli. The lactic acid bacteria isolated from Saanen goats’ milk showed potential to be used as sustainable probiotics in goats’ industry. Successful use of probiotics in animals depends upon availability of appropriate isolates originating from the specific host animal. This study is a positive contribution towards identification of isolates with potential for formulation as direct-fed microbials for South African Saanen goats.
