For example, the lyophilization and rehydration of Lactobacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus cells immobilized within calcium alginate beads resulted in higher survival rates when researchers incorporated glycerol or adonitol with skim milk as a cryoprotectant.
Acid was produced from glucose, mannitol, inositol, sorbitol, sucrose, melibiose, esculin, lactose, salicin, xylose, adonitol, saccharose, trehalose cellobiose, raffinose and arabinose.

However it was unable to utilize sucrose, raffinose, adonitol, methyl A-D mannoside, inositol, xylitol, isobutyrate, methyl A-D glucopyranoside, salicin, D-melizitose and hippurate.
Bacteria were incubated for up to 7 days at 35 [degrees] C in the following sugars: glucose, maltose, lactose, xylose, sucrose, and adonitol.
