Abstract: In the last years, the concern of world population about health has increasing the demand for healthy products; among these products the fermented dairy products are included. For the fermentation, in general, lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are used, because they contribute to the nutritional quality of the product, and they also can promote desirable physiological effect on the consumers. Other factor that has been increasing is the addition of fruit pulps to the fermented milk, because they confer technological and sensorial characteristics to the products, in addition to the increased nutritional value, due to the presence of the fruit bioactive compounds. The objective of this research is to evaluate the effect of biocompounds present in buriti and passion fruit pulps on the viability of LAB and the effect of fruit pulps in fermented milk. The activities will be divided in three steps: in the first part, the production and characterization of buriti and passion fruit pulps will be carried out. In the second step, the in vitro evaluation of fruit extracts on the viability of 10 strains of LAB, characterized previously, will be realized. In the third part, the addition of fruit pulps and the selected strains it will evaluated in fermented milk, by the evaluation of viability of LAB strain, physicochemical characterization, phenolic compounds, total flavonoids and carotenoids contents, and antioxidant activity of fermented products during refrigerated storage.
