Abstract:The aim of this study was to identify and characterize in vitro Lactococcus lactis R7 isolated from commercial ricotta cheese. The results from phenotypic characterization demonstrated that L. lactis R7 had growth potential in a wide temperature range (15 °C and 45 °C), ability to tolerate high osmotic concentrations (sodium chloride 4.0 %), ability to growth in acidic and alkaline condition (pH 2.0 and 9.6), and ability to sugar fermentation (glucose, maltose and ribose). The findings confirm that L. lactis R… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
