  1. The results presented are the average of triplicate experiments and are expressed as mean ± standard deviation
  2. a,b,c,dMean values in the same row with different superscripts are significantly different from each other (P < 0.05)
  3. eLactic acid accumulated is the total of lactic acid added to the culture and lactic acid produced from fermentation
