Abstract From all bacterial groups, the lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are probably the group of bacteria that is most associated with human lifestyle. The term LAB mainly refers to the ability of these organisms to convert sugars to lactic acid. The LAB comprise non-sporing, aerotolerant, coccus or rod-shaped, gram-positive, polyphyletic bacteria. The vast majority of the LAB belong to the phylum Firmicutes, a very diverse group of bacteria with a low (50 mol%) G+C genomic content and has a different mode of sugar fermentation compared with the LAB genera in the Firmicutes phylum, and will therefore not be discussed in this chapter
