Probiotics in Milk as Functional Food: Characterization and Nutraceutical Properties of Extracted Phenolics and Peptides from Fermented Skimmed Milk Inoculated with Royal Jelly Journal of Food Safety Early View (Online Version of Record published before inclusion in an issue) This study evaluated the biological properties of milk fermented with Lactobacillus acidophilus with and without several amounts of royal jelly including: total viable count, pH, titratable acidity, antioxidant activity and inhibitory activities of angiotensin 1-converting enzyme (ACE), α-amylase, and growth of colorectal (SW480) and skin (MV3) cancer cell lines. The bound phenolic extract after acid hydrolysis had better biological properties. The antioxidant activities increased after 4 h of fermentation time in skimmed milk fortified with royal jelly. Contents of aromatic compounds decreased along fermentation time in skimmed milk with royal jelly. The in vitro inhibitory activities against skin and colorectal cancer growth of fermented skimmed milk were not dependent on fermentation time and concentration of royal jelly. Results revealed the accumulation of hydrolytic bioactive peptides with inhibitory activity of ACE at 24 h. Practical Applications Inoculated skimmed milk with different ratios of royal jelly has potential application to manage chronic human diseases including hyperglycemia (type 2 diabetes), hypertension, and breast and skin cancers.

Apitherapy is the use of beehive products for treating or preventing illness and disease. Come with me on a fascinating and incredible journey and each week I will show you how to be healthy, with the help of the amazing little honeybee. For thousands of years, since before the time of the ancient Egyptians, mankind has revered the industrious little honeybee. For over 100 million years bees have been a vital part of our ecosystem, constantly adapting to the ever changing environment. They have evolved the perfect that mankind would do well to emulate. 50,000 or more social insects work tirelessly for the good of the whole community, all with a common purpose – survival of their species. To do this they must address all the factors inherent in the survival process. They will need the tools to build a home, a source of good nutrition, a means of keeping disease at bay, guards to protect them all, and a mother who will lay eggs day and night to replace those who have perished in the sacrifice that is their destiny. I invite you to join me on this journey............ AMBROSIUS
