Abstract

It is of interest to isolate the probiotic yeast Pichia kudriavzevii based on its probiotic characteristics and enzyme production. The isolate was able to withstand high acid, bile concentration and showed a high viability. Additionally, it showed auto aggregation ability that increases with time and hydrophobicity with xylene. It was resistant to different antibiotics and showed no hemolytic activity. The isolate was also capable of producing phytase that can break down phytate. Overall, the characteristics of P. kudriavzevii suggest that it could potentially have probiotic properties, and its ability to produce phytase could also make it useful in feed and animal industries.
