Detoxification of Leucaena leucocephala Leaves by Mixed Fermentation with Kombucha and Lactobacillus acidophilus
Changhui Luo, Zhong Dan, Kai Zao, Shengjun
Kombucha liquid, liquid Lactobacillus acidophilus(Moro) Hansen et Mocquot, Lactobacillus bulgaricus(Orla-Jensen) Rogosa et Hansen and Lactobacillus Plantarum(Orla-Jensen) Bergey were used to ferment leaves of Leucaena leucocephala(Lamarck) de Wit to study their detoxification of the leaves, and Minocin degradation of the leaves of L.leucocephala(Lamarck) de Wit was used as the only indicator. The results showed that when a mixture of Kombucha and L.acidophilus at the equal ratio gave the highest degradation of the leaf Minocin. When the leaves were inoculated with the liquid mixture at 8% and solidly sealed fermentation lasted 30 days, the leaf Minocin was degraded by about 82%. This obvious degradation of Minocin has a given significance in broadening the application of L.leucocephala.
