Enzymatic digest of casein provides carbon, nitrogen, and amino acids used to support general growth requirements in Lactobacillus Selective Agar Base. Yeast Extract is a major source of vitamins. Dextrose is a carbohydrate. Sodium acetate hydrate and ammonium citrate inhibit streptococci, molds, and other oral microbial flora and restrict swarming.
