Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis

Lactococcus lactis is a probiotic bacteria, commonly found in everyday life. This is due to the fact that L. lactis has the ability to produce lactic acid. The principal role of L. lactis in dairy fermentations involves the metabolism of lactose to lactic acid and the conversion of milk proteins into flavor compounds.

 

In addition to helping create many kinds of foods and drinks, this probiotic strain is able to provide the human body with a number of benefits, like dealing with antibiotic-resistant pathogens and reducing blood pressure. L. lactis also helps prevent and reduce intestinal disorders.
