Drosophila behavior toward water amended with nine metabolites (9-metabolite mixture) versus three different apple cider vinegars (ACV), a co-culture (Sc-Am = S. cerevisiae and A. malorum), or tri-culture (Sc-Am-Lp = S. cerevisiae, A. malorum, L. plantarum cs).

Cultures were grown for 72 hr and mixed 1:1 with water, as in all other experiments. Data points represent the Mean ± SEM of two experiments with twelve total replicates. A one-sample t-test assessed whether the mean values of the experimental groups were different from 0. NS > 0.05; *p≤0.05; **p≤0.01; ***p≤0.001; ****p≤0.0001. The acetoin concentration was similar to that calculated from the tri-culture (Figure 5A, 0.3%). The concentrations of all nine metabolites can be found in the materials and methods.
