Answer ( 1 )


    Salmonella bacteria are not typically known as lactose fermenters. Lactose fermentation is a characteristic used to differentiate between different types of bacteria, particularly in microbiological testing. While some bacteria, such as Escherichia coli, are known for their ability to ferment lactose and produce acid, gas, and sometimes color changes in certain laboratory media, Salmonella bacteria typically do not exhibit this characteristic. Instead, Salmonella can be identified by other biochemical tests and specific growth patterns in culture media.
