Lactobacillus Acidophilus L. Acidophilus probiotic editEdit


«Lactobacillus acidophilus (New Latin 'acid-loving milk-bacillus') is a species of gram positivebacteria in the genus Lactobacillus. L. acidophilus is a homofermentative, microaerophilic species, fermenting sugar into lactic acid, and grows readily at rather low pH values (below pH 5.0) and has an optimum growth temperature of around 37 °C (99 °F).[1]L. acidophilus occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract and mouth.[2] Some strains of L. acidophilus may be considered to have probiotic characteristics.[3] These strains are commercially used in many dairy products, sometimes together with Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus in the production of acidophilus-type yogurt, or acidophiline. Its genome has been sequenced.[4]» (wikipedia)
