Improved production of chitin from shrimp waste by fermentation with epiphytic lactic acid bacteria.


The epiphytic Lactobacillus acidophilus SW01 isolated from shrimp waste (SW) was used in SW fermentation. During the fermentation the lag phase of SW01 was hardly observed. The pH of the fermentation broth decreased to 3.86 within 12h and reached the lowest point at 3.73 after 48 h. This indicates a quick and deep acidification process by SW01. Besides… (More)
