Four starter cultures used in dairy industry were investigated in this study for their acidifying activity. Two of them are mesophilic cultures R-703 and R-708 and the other two are thermophilic cultures FRC-60 and FRC-75. These cultures were inoculated in sterile cow milk and incubated at 32°C (mesophilic cultures) and at 45°C (thermophilic cultures). The pH value was determined every 2 hours. The acidification profile of all cultures was similar, but the termophilic cultures produced a faster acidification (after 4 hours), than the mesophilic cultures (after 6 to 8 hours). After 10 hours of incubation the pH value of the medium for all studied cultures was stabilized around 4.5.
