The Lactobacillales are an order of Gram-positive bacteria that comprise the lactic acid bacteria. They are widespread in nature, and are found in soil, water, plants and animals. They are widely used in the production of fermented foods, including dairy products such as yogurt, cheese, butter, buttermilk, kefir and koumiss. LAB are also responsible for the malolactic fermentation process in wine production, and the fermenting of salted cabbage to sauerkraut.
