Why the pH increases in lactic acid producing bacterial fermentation?
The pH decreases because of lactic acid produced by Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus ...
Asked in Chemistry
What is the relation between fermentation of milk and PH?
As milk ferments, the pH decreases (becomes more acidic). This change occurs because lactate (lactic acid) is produced as a result of carbohydrate metabolism. ...
Asked in Baking
Why does pH and salinity effect yeast fermentation?
pH and salinity affects yeast fermentation because yeast can grow or ferment well from pH 4.0 to pH 4.5. Salinity affects pH. ...

What is the relationship between the rate of fermentation and temperature?
the rate of fermentation increases with temperature, then it rapidly decreases! ...
The lower the pH the greater the number of hydrogen ions?
Lets first understand pH.. pH is the negative log of the Hydronium Ions.... pH=-log[H+] e^-pH=[H+] Now as pH decreases... the denominator on the left and side decreases.. Since denominator decreases the entire LHS increases... hence the number of hydronium ions increases....... Proved by simple logic of mathematics.... ...
Asked in Food & Cooking
Why is fermentation considered a healthy method of cooking?
Fermentation is not cooking. Fermenting is allowing good bacteria to create acids that helps to preserve the food. For instance, cabbage is fermented to make sauerkraut. No cooking is involved. ...
What happens to the pH of water if there are aerobic respiring organisms in it and why does this occur?
The acidity increases therefore the pH decreases because they are releasing CO2 which dissolves in water forming carbonic acid (H2CO3). So therefore the pH decreases. ...
