Dynamic Modeling of Carnobacterium Maltaromaticum CNCM I-3298 Growth and Metabolite Production and Model-Based Process Optimization

Abstract : Carnobacterium maltaromaticum is a species of lactic acid bacteria found in dairy, meat, and fish, with technological properties useful in food biopreservation and flavor development. In more recent years, it has also proven to be a key element of biological time-temperature integrators for tracking temperature variations experienced by perishable foods along the cold-chain. A dynamic model for the growth of C. maltaromaticum CNCM I-3298 and production of four metabolites (formic acid, acetic acid, lactic acid, and ethanol) from trehalose in batch culture was developed using the reaction scheme formalism. The dependence of the specific growth and production rates as well as the product inhibition parameters on the operating conditions were described by the response surface method. The parameters of the model were calibrated from eight experiments, covering a broad spectrum of culture conditions (temperatures between 20 and 37 °C; pH between 6.0 and 9.5). The model was validated against another set of eight independent experiments performed under different conditions selected in the same range. The model correctly predicted the growth kinetics of C. maltaromaticum CNCM I-3298 as well as the dynamics of the carbon source conversion, with a mean relative error of 10% for biomass and 14% for trehalose and the metabolites. The paper illustrates that the proposed model is a valuable tool for optimizing the culture of C. maltaromaticum CNCM I-3298 by determining operating conditions that favor the production of biomass or selected metabolites. Model-based optimization may thus reduce the number of experiments and substantially speed up the process development, with potential applications in food technology for producing starters and improving the yield and productivity of the fermentation of sugars into metabolites of industrial interest.
