In the present study Lactobacillus plantarum CBT1209, Pediococcus pentosaceus CBT SL4, and Bifidobacterium longum SPM1205 showed curd formation in soy milk for 8 hours of incubation time in a single-culture experiment. Among these strains, B. longum SPM1205 as a new isolated strain, inhibited the activity of fecal harmful enzymes of rat. Therefore, we investigated the possibility of using a mixed culture containing B. longum SPM1205 for obtaining a curd-type soy-based yogurt with respect to

B. longum SPM1205 was capable of producing moderate sour taste and good overall acceptability in curd-type plain soy-based yogurt for 8 hours of fermentation. Most sensory qualities were not significantly different in the strawberry soy-based yogurt compared to those of commercial milk-based yogurt. The pH of the strawberry soy-based yogurt decreased significantly (P < 0.05) during the days of storage (day 0, 5.18; day 1, 4.80), but the decrease slowed down after 3 days of storage. The lactic acid content and lactic acid bacteria population of plain and strawberry soy-based yogurt were not significantly changed over 10 days of storage. The products contained over 8 log of viable lactic acid bacteria. The results provide feasibility that a curd-type soy-based yogurt can be manufactured using B. longum SPM1205. However, more experiments are needed to improve the sensory qualities such as beany or astringent flavor and color.
