In this study, a systematic strategy is presented, which identifies auxotrophic starters for the popular Thai fermented sausage product, called Nham, using a genome-scale metabolic model. A published genome-scale model of L. plantarum WCFS1 is adopted for studying the L. plantarum BCC9546 characteristics cultured on Simulated Nham Broth. Single gene deletion analysis is performed to determine the genes essential for cell growth. Strains lacking such essential genes are considered potential auxotrophic mutants. Then, Metabolite Supplement Analysis is introduced to determine a list of metabolites supplements for each mutant required to restore its growth. Herein, 9 potential auxotrophs are proposed for use in Nham fermentation, along with their metabolite supplements. Simulation studies showed that the secreted fluxes of organic acids, as well as amino-derived flavor compounds of these auxotrophs, are similar to those of the wild-type, indicating that Nham fermented by these auxotrophs would have similar tastes and flavors as Nham fermented by the wild-type. These proposed auxotrophs and corresponding nutritional supplements will be useful for the design of auxotroph starter culture utilized for Nham production in the laboratory. The systematic strategy presented here will facilitate the analysis and development of auxotroph starters used in the food industry.
