Also called homolactic fermentation, this is a type of lactic acid fermentation in which sugars (such as lactose, glucose, or pentose) are converted entirely, or almost entirely, into lactic acid. Compare heterolactic fermentation. Both heterolactic and homolactic fermentation are done by lactic acid bacteria.
