Abstract of Assessment of Lactobacilli From Nono and Ogi Two Locally Fermented Foods for Hypocholesterolemic Properties
The aim of the study was to assess the effects of lactobacilli from “ogi” and “Nono” for hypocholesterolemic properties. Four prospective Lactobacilli strain were screened for acid and bile tolerance. The most resistant strain was tested in rats fed high cholesterol diet and a control group fed normal diet. The rats were fed for a period of three weeks after which, the animals were euthanized and blood samples were taken. The average values for Triglyceride, Low-density lipoprotein, High-density lipoprotein, Total cholesterol were 1.02±0.081, 0.78±0.214, 1.99±0.035, 3.74±0.103 respectively for rats fed high cholesterol diet and 1.27±0.049, 1.19±0.015, 2.46±0.075 and 4.28±0.098 respectively for the control group. Statistically there were significant differences in the values (p<0.05) but no significant difference in LDL. Chol. (p>0.05). The result of this study shows that lactobacilli isolated from traditional fermented foods has hypocholesterolemic effects.
