  1. Fatty acids produced by L. starkeyi on 3% SBP hydrolysate with or without the addition of 6% molasses in batch and pulsed fed-batch cultures
  2. M monounsaturated fatty acids, P polyunsaturated fatty acids, S saturated fatty acids
  3. *CN was calculated using the equation: CN = 61.1 + 0.088(% 14:0) + 0.133(% 16:0) + 0.152(% 18:0) – 0.101(% 16:1) – 0.039(% 18:1) – 0.243(% 18:2) – 0.395(% 18:3) [48]
