  • a Calculated values that are negative are set to zero. Standard deviations are reported where appropriate.

  • b Values for the fermentation carried out at a controlled temperature of 25°C and a constant pH of 5.5 without added sodium chloride. Abbreviations and dimensions are explained in the footnote to Table 1.
