Abstract:  Batch fermentation of BISS (below Indian standard sugar) in combination with Spirulina hydrolysate (SH) has been successfully explored at 50 L scale to replace costly glucose and yeast extract (YE) medium as a source of complex nutrients to produce calcium lactate economically by using Lactobacillus delbruckii. This has led to optimization of a protocol for cost-effective production of calcium lactate. Reduction in duration of fermentation has potential to provide additional benefits of (i) more batches per unit capital investment and time, (ii) less consumption of utilities, and (iii) higher output per unit labour cost.
