Fermentation of D-Tagatose by Human Intestinal Bacteria and Dairy Lactic Acid Bacteria

Article English OPEN
Bertelsen, Hans; Andersen, Hans; Tvede, Michael;

A number of 174 normal or pathogenic human enteric bacteria and dairy lactic acid bacteria were screened for D-tagatose fermentation by incubation for 48 hours. Selection criteria for fermentation employed included a drop in pH below 5.5 and a distance to controls of mo... View more
