Abstract

Fermented food matrices, including beverages, can be defined as the result of the activity of complex microbial ecosystems where different microorganisms interact according to different biotic and abiotic factors. Certainly, in industrial production, the technological processes aim to control the fermentation to place safe foods on the market. Therefore, if food safety is the essential prerogative, consumers are increasingly oriented towards a healthy and conscious diet driving the production and consequently the applied research towards natural processes. In this regard, the aim to guarantee the safety, quality and diversity of products should be reached limiting or avoiding the addition of antimicrobials or synthetic additives using the biological approach. In this paper, the recent re-evaluation of non-Saccharomyces yeasts (NSYs) has been reviewed in terms of bio-protectant and biocontrol activity with a particular focus on their antimicrobial power using different application modalities including biopackaging, probiotic features and promoting functional aspects. In this review, the authors underline the contribution of NSYs in the food production chain and their role in the technological and fermentative features for their practical and useful use as a biocontrol agent in food preparations.
