This study aimed to investigate the effect of Lactobacillus plantarum strains on quality improvement of bog bilberry juice. Bog bilberry juice with different pH conditions was fermented by Lactobacillus B7 or C8-1 strain. Physicochemical index, amino acids, phenolic compounds, and volatiles of these fermented juices were compared. Results indicated that Lactobacillus plantarum strains preferred to metabolize malic acid and reducing sugar in non-pH-adjusted juice (NJ, pH 2.65), whereas quinic and citric acids were largely consumed in pH-adjusted juice (AJ, pH 3.50). Shikimic acid and aromatic amino acids were significantly accumulated in pH-adjusted juice, and phenolic compounds in both juices were significantly reduced. These strains enhanced the composition and concentration of volatiles compounds in non-pH-adjusted juice and improved the floral and fruity flavors. However, concentration and complexity of volatiles were reduced in pH-adjusted juices.
