Lactobacillus casei is a species of genus Lactobacillus found in the human intestine and mouth. Since it produces lactic acid it helps with the propagation of desirable bacteria. This species is documented to have a wide pH and temperature range. It also improves digestion and reduces lactose intolerance and constipation. Most often L. casei is industrial, specifically for diary production. L. Casei is the dominant species of non-starter lactic acid bacteria present in ripening Cheddar...

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a species in the genus Lactobacillus. It is a homo-fermentative species, fermenting sugars into lactic acid, which grows readily at rather low pH values and has an optimum growth temperature of 37 °C. It occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract, mouth, and vagina. Some strains have probiotic characteristics. Strains are commercially used in many dairy products. It is part of the normal vaginal flora and the acid it produces can help...
