Abstract

Stereoisomers of lactic acid produced by lactic acid bacteria were determined by HPLC by using an enantiomeric resolution column. In general, the ratios of L-form to D-form (the type of stereoisomer) obtained were compared with those in references. Values of the type of stereoisomer of lactic acid were discussed from the viewpoint of identification of lactic acid bacteria.
