Lactobacilli, including 25 genera, are the largest group of lactic acid bacteria. The two most obvious beneficial roles of lactobacilli are as starter cultures (to produce acid rapidly) and as probiotic cultures. Lactobacilli are one of the few contaminant bacteria that are able to grow in the cheese (non starter lactic acid bacteria, NSLAB). Lactobacilli starters and NSLAB may play a different role in the lactose, lactate and citrate metabolisms proteolysis and lipolysis, which are considered the primary events during cheese ripening.

Abstract

Lactobacilli, including 25 genera, are the largest group of lactic acid bacteria. The two most obvious beneficial roles of lactobacilli are as starter cultures (to produce acid rapidly) and as probiotic cultures. Lactobacilli are one of the few contaminant bacteria that are able to grow in the cheese (non starter lactic acid bacteria, NSLAB). Lactobacilli starters and NSLAB may play a different role in the lactose, lactate and citrate metabolisms proteolysis and lipolysis, which are considered the primary events during cheese ripening.
