Abstract

Seven strains of Lactobacillus bulgaricus were assayed for proteolytic activity using o-phthaldialdehyde and classical ion exchange amino acid analysis. The strains were ranked in the same order of proteolysis by both methods. Linear regressions of total and individual amino acid concentrations, except for alanine and glycine, were correlated with o-phthaldialdehyde results (R2 = .95). The mean coefficient of variation was 7.3% for amino acid analyses and 10.2% for o-phthaldialdehyde. The o-phthaldialdehyde method was comparable to amino acid analysis for measuring gross proteolysis, but amino acid analysis provides additional information.
