So, what is l-form?

L-form refers to a variant of bacteria that lacks a rigid cell wall. Unlike most bacteria, which have a defined shape due to the presence of a cell wall, L-form bacteria take on a variety of shapes and sizes. L-form bacteria have been known to occur naturally, and they can also be created artificially by exposing bacterial cells to certain stressors that disrupt their cell walls. L-form bacteria have been studied for their potential use in biotechnology and as a model for studying cell wall synthesis and maintenance. While L-form bacteria are not typically used as a food ingredient, they have potential applications in the production of fermented foods and probiotics.
