Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus

First identified by isolating it from a yogurt sample, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus can be found naturally in the gastrointestinal tract of mammals.

Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus (also known as Lactobacillus bulgaricus), is a lactic acid producing bacteria largely used in dairy industries, notably in cheese-making and yogurt production. 

It is the main bacterium used for the production of yogurt. It also plays a crucial role in the ripening of some cheeses, as well as in other processes involving naturally fermented products. It is defined as homofermentative lactic acid bacteria due to lactic acid being the single end product of its carbohydrate digestion. It is also considered a probiotic.

Food sources rich in Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus

Yogurt is a popular fermented milk product containing both Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus cultures. Most yogurts contain several nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D and potassium. 

Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus is commonly used alongside Streptococcus thermophilus as a starter for making yogurt. The two species work in synergy, with L. d. bulgaricus producing amino acids from milk proteins, which are then used by S. thermophilus.
