Abstract Production of lactic acid from date juice by fermentation has been studied using Lactobacillus casei subsp. rhamnosus as the producer organism. The optimum substrate concentration, expressed in its glucose content, was 60 g l(-1). Various nitrogen sources were compared with yeast extract in terms of their efficiency for lactic acid production. None of these nitrogen sources gave lactic acid concentrations as high as that obtained with yeast extract. As yeast extract supplementation was not economically attractive, different proportions of (NH4)2SO4 and yeast extract were used. When the elemental nitrogen ratio of(NH4)2SO4 to yeast extract was 4:1, the substrate use and efficiency of lactic acid production were the same as in date juice supplemented with 20 g l(-1) yeast extract (0:5).
