Additional Information: Idli a traditional cereal or legume based naturally fermented steamed product with soft and spongy texture is highly popular food. Idli fermentation is essentially an autofermentation which depends on the environmental inoculum. On many occasions, inconsistent quality in final product occurs due to the process of natural fermentation. This may be the result of lack of proper fermenting micro flora. Thus selection of suitable starter culture is an important aspect for the quality of final product which produces lactic acid at the end of the carbohydrate fermentation and it inhibits the growth of other microbes. Contamination is done by the food borne pathogens like Listeria monocytogens, Staphylococcus aureus. Listeriosis outbreaks could be linked to consumption of contaminated products. To prevent this contamination, application of bacteriocins and antibiotics to food products has been investigated. In recent years, the inhibitory effect of enterocin (bacteriocin produced by enterococci) to food products has been investigated widely. Enterococcus faecium was characterized as thermostable, hydrophobic substance with broad antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
