What is the substrate of bulgaros and the organelle that makes this process possible?
Question Date: 2012-09-12
Answer 1:

Bulgaricus is not a genus (a genus is a low- level taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms), I don't think; the closest thing that I can find is a bacterium that ferments lactose to make lactic acid, which is part of what creates yogurt. I don't know what special organelles it has.
