Virgin Coconut Oil is an oil of coconut milk fermentation that has many uses such as can prevent HIV, because it functions as antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agents are found in bacteria lactic acid bacteriocin, a peptide that can destroy bacterial cells and pathogenic fungi and viral cells. The aim of this study was to identify molecularly lactic acid bacteria isolated and morphologically identified and biochemical tests, from fermented coconut milk. Apparently lactic acid bacteria is Lactobacillus paracasei strain 1.7.


Virgin Coconut Oil adalah minyak dari fermentasi santan kelapa yang mempunyai banyak sekali kegunaan diantaranya  dapat mencegah HIV, karena berfungsi sebagai antibakteri, antijamur dan antivirus. Zat antibakteri, antijamur dan antivirus itu terdapat pada bakteri asam laktat yaitu bakteriosin, berupa peptida yang dapat menghancurkan sel bakteri dan jamur patogen serta sel virus. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah mengidentifikasi secara molekular bakteri asam laktat  yang telah diisolasi dan diidentifikasi secara morfologi dan uji – uji biokimia, dari santan yang difermentasi.  Ternyata bakteri asam laktat nya adalah Laktobacillus paracasei strain 1.7.
