Metabolic engineering of lactobacillus plantarum for production of polyols

Objective

Polyols are low-calory sugars that could replace sucrose with equivalent taste. The cloning and study of the polyol catabolism operons allow us engineer the L. plantarum metabolism to obtain new products with neutracetical effects thorough optimization of the fermentation conditions.
