Production of natural folates by lactic acid bacteria starter cultures isolated from artisanal Argentinean yogurts
Abstract:Folate is a B-group vitamin that cannot be synthesized by humans and must be obtained exogenously. Although some species of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) can produce folates, little is known about the production of this vitamin by yogurt starter cultures.
