Bread spoilage is mainly due to the growth of filamentous fungi, and metabolites produced during sourdough fermentation by lactobacilli can inhibit fungal growth. One of these metabolites is phenyllactic acid (PLA), which is a catabolite from phenylalanine. In this work, the influence of peptide supply and cosubstrates was determined on PLA formation from phenylalanine by Lactobacillus plantarum TMW1.468 and Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis DSM20451(T). Transport of single amino acids is not… CONTINUE READING
