- ... The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of seven lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains to remove aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) and in skimmed milk samples. The mean AFM1 removal by LAB in PBS ranged from 5.60 ± 0.45% to 45.67 ± 1.65% (n = 3). Heat-killed cells showed AFM1 removal percentages significantly higher than viable cells in contact times of 15 min or 24 h, al ...
