Abstract
Formation and degradation of amines by lactic acid bacteria in Sake-brewing were studied.
Tyramine and two kinds of guanidine compounds were produced by lactic acid bacteria, i. e., Lactobacillus Sake and Leuconostoc mesenterioides var. Sake, in cultures on Koji-extract.
Several kinds of amines were detected in the cell-free extract of bacteria harvested from cultures on koji-extract. They were : iso-butylamine, cadaverine and four kinds of ninhydrine-positive substances.
In the course of autolysis of the bacterial cell, some of them showed a decreasing tendency in amount.
From these facts, it is considered to be possible that lactic acid bacteria play an important role in amine formation and degradation in Sake-brewing.
