Abstract Lactic acid bacteria display a relatively simple metabolism wherein the sugar is converted mainly to lactic acid. The extensive knowledge of metabolic pathways and the increasing information of the genes involved allows for the rerouting of natural metabolic pathways by genetic and physiological engineering. We discuss several examples of metabolic engineering of Lactococcus lactis for the production of important compounds, including diacetyl, alanine and exopolysaccharides.
