Lactic acid bacterial Lactobacillus plantarum Lactobacillus johnsonii Mushroom Lactic acid fermentations can be performed through inoculation in order to ensure consistent product quality and safety. This research investigates the effect of the use of Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus johnsonii as a mixed starter in mushroom and vegetables fermentation on its product quality. The fermented product showed pH, titratable acidity and total phenolic content of 4.01±0.02, 1.00±0.03% and

The results from this research suggest quality satisfaction of the fermented product in microbial, chemical and sensory after 30day storage at 4  C. This study showed that the fermented mushroom and vegetable product has the potential to be used as a probiotic carrier food.
