UNA IZQUIERDO, Florentino; SANCHEZ ORTIZ, Ileana; PEDRAZA OLIVERA, Redimio  and  ARENAL CRUZ, Amilcar. Lactobacillus pentosus in Animal Feeding. Review. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.1, pp. 7-15. ISSN 2224-7920.

This review aimed to assess the involvement of Lactobacillus pentosus in the field of food production. Journals specialized in poultry and animal production in general were reviewed. The main descriptor used was Lactobacillus. It was found that L. pentosus is a versatile species found in a variety of environmental niches, which has a significant presence in the preparation of many fermented foods; also in the secretion of various substances of antimicrobial character, and it contributes to reduce environmental pollution. There are very few researches on the participation of L. pentosus in the agricultural production of meat and poultry.

Keywords : meat production; bacteriocins; biosurfactants; probiotic.
