RESUMO

A fermentação maloláctica (FML), prática corrente em vinificação, é um processo de desacidificação biológica, realizado por bactérias do ácido láctico (BAL). A complexidade e diversidade da actividade metabólica das BAL sugerem que a FML pode afectar positiva ou negativamente a qualidade do produto final.

Nesta revisão apresenta-se uma caracterização geral das BAL em termos de taxonomia, metabolismo, habitats e aplicações industriais e o estado-da-arte sobre as BAL do vinho e do seu papel no processo de vinificação. Os efeitos benéficos (hidrólise dos glucosídeos pela acção de ß-glucosidases) e nocivos (degradação da arginina e formação de carbamato de etilo; formação de aminas biogénicas, nomeadamente histamina, tiramina e putrescina) das BAL do vinho, bem como a temática das culturas ‘starter’, são igualmente explorados para ilustrar o interesse enológico deste grupo particular de microrganismos.

Palavras-chave: bactérias do ácido láctico, fermentação maloláctica, â-glucosidases, aminas biogénicas, vinho

 

SUMMARY

Review: wine lactic acid bacteria– Part II

Malolactic fermentation (MLF), the deacidification carried by lactic acid bacteria (LAB), is a longstanding process in winemaking and the complexity and diversity of the metabolic activity of LAB suggest that MLF can positively or negatively affect the quality of the final product. This review presents a general characterization of LAB in terms of taxonomy, metabolism, habitats and industrial applications, followed by a state-of-the-art on wine LAB and their role in the winemaking process. A particular emphasis is presented on the beneficial (the hydrolysis of glucosides by ß-glucosidases) and harmful effects (the degradation of arginine and formation of ethyl carbamate; the formation of biogenic amines such as histamine, tyramine and putrescine) of wine LAB, as well as on the issue of starter cultures, to illustrate their oenological interest.

Key words: lactic acid bacteria, malolactic fermentation, â-glucosidases, biogenic amines, wine
