Composition, Uses, Toxicology and Debittering. Prepared cultures of Lactobacillus paracasei BGP1 L jiwicha, Bifido bacterium longum SP54 B and one co-culture of both LB were inoculated to nine sterilized formulations; the initial number of bacteria was of 5. It is consumed in the form of cooked, dry or roasted, mixed with sugary substances or cane honey or bees, forming small buns. Production of a yogurt-like product from Lupinus campestris seeds.

After boiled, tarwi juice was bottled while hot, cooled quickly and frozen for later use. The counting of the CFU number in the fermentation processes was carried out in a similar way.

The sensorial assessment was carried out by six trained judges. The chemical characteristics of these products vary considerably depending on the type of culture used, the substrate and the processing, during which variations take place in the pH and the acidity that lead to the formation of organic acids in relation with the levels of reduction of the contents vaalor sugars, generation of amino acids, and other metabolites associated with flavor Waters et al.

Probiotics are defined as living microorganisms that when administered in appropriate quantities confer health benefits to the consumer Tamang et al.

It is also good nourishment for expectant mothers and infants because it provides calcium, phosphorus and iron, which help keep teeth, bones and blood healthy. Flavor of lactic acid fermented malt based beverages: The formulations containing tarwi juice and sucrose were not favorable in the growth of microorganisms, decrease in pH and nutrciional in acidity. The purpose of this research was to assess the use of the liquid portion of the hydrolyzed kiwicha on the physical chemical characteristics and the viability of the lactobacillus paracasei BGP1, Bifido bacterium longum SP54 and the mixture of both during fermentation process and in the cold storage of probiotic drinks of tarwi juice.


In this research, the fermentation times using hydrolyzed kiwicha and tarwi juice to reach a pH of 5. Its production requires substrates that favor the viability of probiotics in the process and storage. Several authors claim that hydrolysis of kiwicha with amylolitic enzymes produces amaranth flour with higher content of protein and carbohydrates that can be a useful ingredient for hypercaloric drinks for athletes Maza, Current status and perspectives. In addition, consumption of oligosaccharides favors the proliferation of bifid bacteria in the colon, which are beneficial and combat pathogen bacteria.

Kiwicha is a gluten-free grain, also rich in iron and containing potassium, zinc and manganese.

Amaranthus caudatus – Wikipedia

However, after debittering or dehydration processes, it is used in several culinary dishes or to obtain lupine flour. Lactic acid bacteria as a cell factory for the delivery of functional biomolecules and ingredients in cereal based beverages: As a result of carrying out this research, a technology has been developed that generates new formulations and fermentation processes using probiotics for the preparation of new types of drinks from tarwi juice and hydrolyzed kiwicha in a liquid state.

Valoe Dunnet test performed with respect to the initial population in each type of drink showed an increase in the significant differences in the course of post fermentation; Table 3 shows these differences with capital letters. The Brix degrees decreased during post fermentation. The viability of probiotics in drinks improved with the increase of hydrolyzed kiwicha in the composition of the drink during fermentation and post fermentation, and showed good tolerance to pH.

Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition56 9 Its scientific name is Amarathus caudatus L.

Kiwicha by Ximena Santa Cruz Espinoza on Prezi

It also helps create enzymes, antibodies and hormones. This process continued for eight days, carrying out two water changes a day; the grain was pealed, followed by blanching for 1. Universidad Nacional Jorge Basadre Grohmann.

The analysis of the results of the 6 formulations assessed during post fermentation indicates that the viability of probiotics is greater when the content of liquid hydrolyzed kiwicha is increased. Additionally Dunnet’s test was applied to compare means referring to the initial number of microorganisms in each formulation in the post-fermentation. Human health benefits Super kiwicha, also known as amaranth, is a plant native to the Andes.

Lactobacillus paracaseiB. The use of the liquid portion of hydrolyzed kiwicha in the production of probiotic drinks with tarwi juice improve the viability of the lactic bacteria assessed, especially when the amount of hydrolyzed increased.


Functional Properties of Microorganisms in Fermented Foods. Probiotics must meet with certain requirements: The drinks prepared within this research are lactose free and have a low content of carbohydrates.

Survival of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobactevium bifidum in commercial yoghurt during refrigerated storage. In the 1L, 1B and 1LB formulations, acidity only reached 0.

Non-diary probiotic drinks are of interest to the consumers who suffer from lactose intolerance and allergenicity when consuming milk and its derivatives. Compuestos bioactivos derivados de amaranto y quinua.

This roasted grain is subjected to grinding and flour is obtained which can be used for various mixtures in the preparation of desserts, breads, rolls, biscuits, noodles, cakes, tortillas. Despite the ban, brave farmers saved it from extinction. Basic information Kiwicha reigned supreme among the Incan food staples because of its nutritional and medicinal properties. Type 1 formulations do not contain a liquid portion of the hydrolyzed kiwicha HLKonly tarwi juice JTthe type 2 formulation contains a proportion of Kiwicha is known by different names in the countries where it is harvested or eaten.

Amaranthus caudatus

The batter obtained was boiled for 5 minutes, then filtered and avlor, and the solid materials were removed. Food and Nutrition Sciences3 8 This high viability is very favorable as the success of the new drinks depends on the ability of the probiotics to provide a high enough number of viable cells beneficial to the intestinal microbial flora of the consumer Shori, This better kinetic behavior can be seen when the value of the HLK content is greater.

Viability of probiotics was measured according to what was described in the previous item. Abstract Non-diary probiotic drinks are of interest to the consumers who suffer from lactose intolerance vwlor allergenicity when consuming milk and its derivatives. Non-dairy probiotic drinks are not new; several traditional products are produced in many regions of the world.

The sensory characteristics of the obtained drinks were favorable. With the presence of strawberry and orange flavors, the drinks were rated on the scale of 6 and 7 I like it — I like it a lot. Development of a soy-based synbiotic beverage.
