So, what is lactic yeasts?

Lactic yeasts are a type of microorganism that are commonly used in the fermentation of foods and beverages. They are responsible for producing lactic acid, which gives foods like yogurt, sourdough bread, and sauerkraut their tangy flavor. Unlike traditional yeast, which ferments sugars into alcohol, lactic yeasts metabolize sugars into lactic acid, resulting in a sour taste. Lactic yeasts can also have a beneficial effect on digestion by breaking down lactose in dairy products. These versatile microorganisms are a valuable addition to the culinary world and are often used in the production of probiotics and other health foods.
