A MEDIUM FOR THE CULTIVATION OF LACTOBACILLI

Authors


Abstract

SUMMARY: An improved growth medium for lactobacilli is described. It supports good growth of lactobacilli generally and also is particularly useful for a number of fastidious strains which grow only poorly in other general media. In addition, tomato juice, a highly variable material, is not required. In a slightly modified form, it can also be used as a basal medium for fermentation tests.
