In this project, the E. coli bacterial counts are enumerated in samples from an externally performed feeding trial. The determination of the germ count takes place without selection pressure as well as with specially adapted antibiotics containing media. Subsequently, defined numbers of presumptive E. coli isolates per sample are obtained, purified and identified by MALDI-TOF MS at the species level. These isolates are then tested for antibiotic susceptibility based on current international guidelines.

As part of the project, the microbiota of selected natural sourdoughs is analysed in detail. The dominant lactic acid bacteria and yeasts are isolated, purified, identified, characterized and stored in a strain collection. The aim of the close cooperation with the project partner Versuchsanstalt für Getreideverarbeitung (vg) is the microecological description of the sourdough microbiota with regard to the development of premium bakery products, which should then be made available to the Austrian mills and bakers through the project partner vg.
