Four Lactobacillus species were studied for their ability to grow at high NaCl concentrations and different initial pH values. Lactobacillus plantarum 541 and A6 could ferment glucose and produce lactic acid in the presence of 8% salt in the medium. For strain 541, the specific rate of lactate production (q(lac)) and the yield of lactic acid relative to substrate (Y(p/s)) remained constant, whereas the yield of biomass relative to substrate (Y(x/s)) decreased up to 6% salt. In contrast, for… CONTINUE READING
