Súhrn: Effect of commercial protective cultures consisting of Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp. shermanii on growth of resistant yeast contaminants C. maltosa YP1 was examined in fresh yoghurt products. The partial inhibition of growth of C. maltosa and its temperature dependence were observed. Adding of protective culture has no relevant effect on the lag time, however the temperature effect was significant. Growth rate of C. maltosa was significantly influenced by both factors protective culture and temperature of incubation as was described by the following Ratkowsky model ÖGrPc = 0.0112T + 0.0373 (R2 = 0.9569) for the trials with protective culture and ÖGrc = 0.0126T + 0.0489 (R2 = 0.9696) for the control samples, respectively. Furthermore, the equations resulting from secondary models were used for predicting the time yeast contaminants need to reach the count of 1.106 in yoghurts at different storage temperatures. Predictions of this time were on the order of 8 d and 6 d longer in yoghurt containing protective culture at 6 and 8 °C, respectively. However our results confirmed the effects of protective culture on growth of yoghurt yeast contaminant, the application of protective culture in fermented dairy products cannot be considered a substitution for good hygiene or good manufacturing practice.
