Lactobacilli are normal inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract of man and animals where they are widely considered to exert a number of beneficial roles including immunomodulation, interference with enteric pathogens, and maintenance of a healthy intestinal microflora. Historically, probiotic roles have been ascribed primarily to Lactobacillus acidophilus. The genus Lactobacillus presently comprises more than 50 recognized species of non pathogenic bacteria which in addition to their probiotic effects are useful to human as indispensable agents for the fermentation of foods and feed.

L.fermentum IFO 3956, isolated from fermented plant material, is an obligate heterofermentative organism, producing CO2, ethanol, acetate, and lactate from metabolism of glucose. To do so it probably uses the pentose phosphate pathway. Unlike the closely related Lactobacillus reuteri JCM 1112, it does not make cobalamin or the antimicrobial compound reuterin (adapted from PubMed 18487258).
