CompletenessClose to Standard

Kimchi, a representative Korean fermented food, is fermented from a variety of vegetables, such as Chinese cabbage or radish, with seasoning ingredients, including red pepper powder, garlic, and salts. Weissella koreensis (strain KACC 15510) is a facultative anaerobic, non-spore-forming, heterofermentative Gram-positive bacterium originally isolated from a Chinese cabbage kimchi. The cells are generally short rods with rounded to tapered ends or coccoid in shape, occurring singly, in pairs or in short chains. Growth occurs at 10 and 37 degrees Celsius and at pH 4.0-8.0, but not at 42 degrees Celsius. The optimum temperature and pH for growth are 25 degrees Celsius and pH 6.0. W. koreensis does not grow in 8 or 10% NaCl. Arginine is hydrolyzed and dextran is formed from sucrose. Lactic acid and gas are produced from glucose. Acid is produced from l-arabinose, ribose and xylose. (Adapted from PMID: 21914863).
