Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute your article to a Special Issue focusing on traditional fermented beverages. All over the world, traditional fermented beverages constitute a significant part of human beverage intake, they are consumed as complementary foods, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The objective of this Special Issue will be to present and discuss all the new and emerging information regarding traditional fermented beverages around the world. We anticipate prompt peer review by global leaders in this area of research and a plan to publish the Special Issue as a printed book version if we successfully garner more than ten articles. There is a lot of space to analyze and describe frontiers in production, microbiology, microbiome and metabolomics, biochemistry, sensory, bioactive compounds, health benefits, starter cultures development and process optimization of different traditional fermented beverages.

As a recognized leader in this area of research, it is an honor to invite you to kindly contribute your article in form of original research or a review paper for this Special Issue focusing on “Traditional Fermented Beverages”.

Fermented milk-based beverages containing fruits are perceived as healthy foods by consumers and are increasingly demanded. The incorporation of sweet cherry into fermented milks was evaluated in the present study. Maturation stage of cherry 8 and 12 (commercial and over-ripened) and starter culture (Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus paracasei and Lactobacillus helveticus) were tested. Antioxidant properties, anthocyanin content, color and microbial counts were used to assess the quality of the fermented milks. L. helveticus exhibited the fastest acidification rate; whereas L. casei and L. paracasei presented the highest microbial counts. Fermented milks containing grade 12 sweet cherries yielded the highest concentration of anthocyanins and color intensity and preserved phenolic compounds and anthocyanins during 10 days of refrigerated storage. L. helveticus preserved the highest content of phenols, whereas L. casei and L. paracasei better preserved anthocyanins. Overall, fermented milk with L. helveticus including grade 12 cherry puree provided the best preservation of bioactive compounds. Full article
