Table 3 The different probiotic combinations prepared by adding equal concentrations (10 8cfu/ ml) of probiotic strains

From: Cocktails of probiotics pre-adapted to multiple stress factors are more robust under simulated gastrointestinal conditions than their parental counterparts and exhibit enhanced antagonistic capabilities against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus
