Growth effects of lactic acid bacteria in the presence of Spirulina platensis
Ashok Kr Singh
The Spirulina platensis is filamentous cyanobacteria known as blue green algae which aften used as single cell protein. The extracted biomass of Spirulina platensis was studied on lactic acid bacteria grown in milk. The addition of 10 mg Spirulina platensis into milk stimulate the growth of lactic acid bacteria. These are hecterogenous group of bacteria which play a significant role in variety of fermentation process.
