Homo-fermentative production of d-lactic acid by Lactobacillus sp. employing casein whey permeate as a raw feed-stock


Casein whey permeate (CWP), a lactose-enriched dairy waste effluent, is a viable feed stock for the production of value-added products. Two lactic acid bacteria were cultivated in a synthetic casein whey permeate medium with or without pH control. Lactobacillus lactis ATCC 4797 produced d-lactic acid (DLA) at 12.5 g l−1 in a bioreactor. The values of… (More)
