Aims:  To evaluate the potential use of MALDI-TOF MS for fast and reliable classification and identification of lactic acid bacteria from traditional fermented foods. Methods and results:  A total of 119 strains of LAB from fermented meat (nem chua) were analyzed with both (GTG)(5) -PCR fingerprinting and MALDI-TOF MS. Cluster analysis of the profiles revealed five species represented by a single isolate both in (GTG)(5) -PCR and in MALDI-TOF MS; five species grouped alike for (GTG)(5) -PCR and for MALDI-TOF MS, however, differences in minimal similarity between the delineated (GTG)(5) -PCR and MALDI-TOF MS clusters could be observed; three species showed more heterogeneity in their MALDI-TOF MS profiles compared to their (GTG)(5) -PCR profiles; two species, each represented by a single MALDI-TOF cluster were subdivided in the corresponding (GTG)(5) -PCR dendrogram. As proof of the identification potential of MALDI-TOF MS, LAB diversity from one fermented mustard sample was analyzed using MALDI- TOF MS. PheS gene sequencing was used for validation. Conclusions:  MALDI-TOF MS is a powerful, fast, reliable, and cost effective technique for the identification of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) associated with the production of fermented foods. Significance and Impact of the Study:  Food LAB can be identified using MALDI-TOF MS and its application could possibly be extended to other food matrices and/or other food derived micro-organisms. © 2012 The Authors Letters in Applied Microbiology © 2012 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
