Growth stimulatory material for lactic acid bacteria was extracted from radish and radish green juice and its growth stimulatory effect was tested. Dried methanol-precipitated growth stimulatory material was lightly grayish white powder, Its ash content is 44% and approximately 50% of the ash is sulfur. It has reddish brown color upon solubilization in water. The material had unchanged stimulatory effect when it was treated with proteinase or pectinase, or ashed. The growth stimulatory activity was dialyzable. The material was able to counteract the growth inhibitory effect of EDTA. When selected lactic acid bacteria were grown at $30^{\circ}C$ for 24 hours in peptone(0.5%)-yeast extract(0.5%)-glucose(2%) broth with and without 0.5% growth stimulatory material, the material stimulated the growth of Lactobacillus plantarum, L. fermentum, L. leichmanii, L. sake, L. brevis, L. acidophilus, L. casei, Pediococcus pentosaceus, Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Streptococcus faecalis, S. lactis, S. cremoris and S. thermophilus by 19, 1833, 133, 444, 840, 32, 14, 18, 6, 17, 4, 5 and 4 times, respectively.
