Novel Bacteria Strain Gives Blueberry Juice Obesity Fighting Powers In Mouse Study

September 3, 2009: 12:41 AM EST
Blueberry juice “biotransformed” with a newly-developed strain of blueberry skin bacteria reduced the glycemic index of mice by as much as 35 percent, according to a Canadian university study. Researchers said the mice, who were genetically modeled for obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and hypertension, ate less and lost weight after ingesting the juice. The new strain of bacteria, Serratia vaccinii, increases the fruit's antioxidant effects, the scientists said, adding that the findings “may result in the discovery of promising new antiobesity and antidiabetic molecules.”
