Abstract

Exopolysaccharides produced by lactic acid bacteria have tremendous value in the development of new functional foods. Different types of exopolysaccharides produced vary in monomer composition, molecular weight and structure. This review focuses on the heteropolysaccharides produced by lactic acid bacteria. The huge diversity of heteropolysaccharides presents several applications in food industry. Here we report heteropolysaccharides produced by lactic acid bacteria along with their characteristics and applications.

Keywords: Lactic acid bacteria (LAB); Heteropolysaccharide (HePS); Exopolysaccharide (EPS); Homopolysaccharide (HoPS)
