Abstract

The oligosaccharide metabolism in soymilk was investigated by mixed culture with Lactobacillus acidophilus and Saccharomyces uvarum. When Saccharomyces uvarum was cultured in soywhey, change of oligosaccharide could be shown apparently. However, Lactobacillus acidophilus could not utilize oligosaccharide in soywhey for growth and lactic acid production. During the fermentation of mixed culture with Lactobacillus acidophilus and Saccharomyces uvarum, Saccaharomyces uvarum was supposed to convert oligosaccharide to monosaccharide first and then Lactobacillus acidophilus to convert these produced monosaccharide to lactic acid.
