Broccoli (Brassica oleracea Italica) was fermented by cultures of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as a potential source of natural folic acid. This study aimed to evalte characteristic changes and to identify folate compounds from broccoli extract, fermented by mixed LAB cultures (L. bulgaricus, S. thermophulus, L.acidophilus, Bd. bifidum). The formulation of broccoli extract was fermented with variation of LAB starter culture with concentrations of 10 and 20%(v/v), and the change of characteristic

The results showed that the fermentation of broccoli extract with different concentration of LAB culture had an effect on the concentration of folic acid produced, as well as the change of concentration of folic acid during the fermentation time interval. The optimum condition was obtained based on the highest folic acid concentration of 6.74%, at culture concentration of 20% during 24 hour fermentation with the value of folic acid concentration of 72.11 μg/mL, pH value of 4.29, total sugars of 34.61%, total acids of 0, 97%, dissolved protein of 14.64 mg/mL and total LAB of log 13.02 + 0.05 cfu / ml.
