Abstract

Probiotics have been emerging as a promising approach to prevent and control foodborne diseases [1]. In the last years, the bacterial species isolated from gut microbiota, such as Faecalibacterium spp. and Akkermansia muciniphila, have been proposed as novel probiotic candidates [2]. The cell surface hydrophobicity, auto-aggregation and co-aggregation with pathogens are considered desirable characteristics of probiotic strains and these properties may be used in preliminary screening to identify potential probiotic microorganisms appropriate for human or animal use [3].
