Production Potency of Folate, Vitamin B12, and Thiamine by Lactic Acid Bacteria Isolated from Japanese Pickles
Bioscience, biotechnology and biochemistry
We investigated the extracellular production of folate, vitamin B 12 , and thiamine in cultures of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) isolated from nukazuke, a traditional Japanese pickle, and the relationships between the vitamin production and such properties of LAB as tolerance to salts, ethanol, etc. Among the 180 isolates of LAB, two strains of Lactobacillus (Lb.) sakei and a strain of Lb. plantarum extracellularly produced high levels of folate (about 100 g/L). A strain of Lb. coryniformis anddoi:10.1271/bbb.120414 pmid:23132566 fatcat:6iqcnzndbfhlvn3ibhovqnvlbe
