  A set of chemical and microbiological analyses was established, in order to substantiate scientifically the valuable content of a Lactobacillus biomass, in order to use it as a component of a probiotic preparation playing an important role on health improvement and convalescence. The best results concerning the optical density of the cultures and the quality of the biological material were obtained using a culture of Lactobacillus paracasei on media with honey, pollen and raffinose.
