The influence of inulin on some biological properties of Enterobacteriaceae, both pathogenic (Salmonella) and opportunistic (Klebsiella, Escherichia coli) was experimentally determined in vitro. The study revealed that inulin stimulated the production of colicin and suppressed the hemolytic activity in E. coli. The effect produced by inulin on the antilysozyme activity (ALA) of Enterobacteriaceae was different: in S. typhimurium ALA was decreased and in most K. pneumoniae strains the expression of this sign was enhanced.
