Acetobacter

(Science: bacteria) acetobacter is a genus of rod-shaped, flagellated or nonmotile bacteria that oxidize ethanol to acetic acid.

These bacteria are commonly found on fruits and vegetables and although they are used commercially to produce vinegar (especially acetobacter aceti), they are considered pests by brewers and vintners.

Origin: L. Acetum = vinegar.
