Abstract

The probiotic features of strain GM newly isolated from Tunisian spontaneously fermented goat milk and identified as Bacillus tequilensis-GM were assessed. Strain GM showed high resistance to saliva (90.64%), gastric juice (88.55%), intestinal juice (72.83%) and resistance to bile salts (65.22%), was able to act against Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 15313, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 and Enterococcus feacalis ATCC 25912, showed high surface hydrophobicity (77.3%) and was sensitive to most of the studied antibiotics. Strain GM did not exhibit any hemolytic activity whereas it was able to produce protease, amylase and β-galactosidase. Moreover, results showed that strain GM produced high molecular weight β-(2 → 6)-levan with high ability to inhibit and to disrupt pathogenic biofilms and with high ability to reduce syneresis of sucrose-supplemented skimmed milk. B. tequilensis-GMcan therefore be suitable to be used as starter culture in fermented dairy products, since it possesses desirable probiotic properties in addition to its ability to produce levan.
