Aims: To examine the potential of Lactobacillus delbrueckii mutant, Uc-3 to produce lactic acid and fructose from sucrose-based media. Methods and Results: The mutant of L. delbrueckii NCIM 2365 was cultivated in shake flask containing hydrolysed cane sugar (sucrose)-based medium. The lactic acid yield and volumetric productivity with hydrolysed cane concentration up to 200 g l)1 were in the range of 92–97% of the theoretical value and between 2Æ7 and 3Æ8 g l)1 h)1, respectively. The fructose fraction of the syrup produced was more than 95% when the total initial sugar concentration in the medium was higher (150–200 g l)1). There are no unwanted byproducts detected in the fermentation broth. Conclusions: We demonstrated that L. delbrueckii mutant Uc-3 was able to utilize glucose preferentially to produce lactic acid and fructose from hydrolysed cane sugar in batch fermentation process. Significance and Impact of the Study: These findings will be useful in the production of lactic acid and high fructose syrups using media with high concentrations of sucrose-based raw materials. This approach can lead to modification of the traditional fermentation processes to obtain value-added byproducts, attaining better process economics.
