Table 2 Yield of biomass and lactic acid obtained in batch experiments of L. crispatus L1 grown on SDM supplemented with 20 g · l −1 glucose or sucrose as main carbon sources

From: Lactobacillus crispatus L1: high cell density cultivation and exopolysaccharide structure characterization to highlight potentially beneficial effects against vaginal pathogens

Carbon source Cell dry weight (g · l−1) Lactic acid (g · l−1) μmax(h−1)
Glucose 3.8 ± 0.3 11.5 ± 0.5 0.84
Sucrose 3.3 ± 0.2 13.6 ± 0.4 0.60
  1. The medium contained soy peptone and yeast extract as nitrogen sources.
