This book provides an introduction to biosurfactants produced by lactic acid bacteria presenting a detailed compilation of their functional properties and structural composition microbial surfactants extensively known as surface active agents have created a niche for themselves in the. The demand for biosurfactants in the cosmetics food pharmaceuticals agricultural and environmental industries is steadily growing and biosurfactants from lactic acid bacteria possess significant biological properties making them potentially suitable for antimicrobial anti adhesive and various other industrially important applications. Lactic acid bacteria are recognized to produce various antimicrobial compounds such as bacteriocin biosurfactants organic acids carbon peroxide diacetyl low molecular weight antimicrobial substances and hydrogen peroxide which prevent the growth of potential pathogens. Abstract biosurfactants are superior to chemical surfactants because of their biological origin biodegradability and low level of toxicity for this reason biosurfactants have been extensively considered for application in food processing cosmetics formulations microbial enhanced oil recovery soil washing emulsifying materials and bioremediation agents
