Fermentation of carbohydrates

Fermentation of carbohydrates during the formation of acid can be used to identify bacteria and here is a table of carbohydrates, which are often used for identification, and whether the current bacterium can ferment one or several of them.

Lactose + indicates that the bacterium ferments lactose under acid production.
Note that glucose(gas) - indicates that the bacterium does not ferment glucose under gas formation.
