Our probiotics can produce enough vitamins!

In order to evaluate how much vitamins our probiotics could produce in idli during an overnight fermentation, we made a predictive mathematical model, taking into account the growth rate of micro-organisms in the idli batter and the rate of vitamin production, as well as the lag and the stationary phase of microbial growth.
Our diagram shows the amount of vitamin A, B2 and B12 that our micro-organisms would produce in a 12 hours fermentation. According to our model, adding 10 mL of saturated culture in the idli batter before the fermentation would be enough to meet the daily intake recommended by the FAO for those three vitamins.
