A method and use of nisin-permeabilized microbial cells as whole-cell catalysts for reducing the amount of a target substrate in a sample to one of more product are provided. Specifically, a method of reducing the amount of lactose in a dairy sample using nisin-permeabilized lactic acid bacterial cell catalysts, which have been permeabilized by incubating with a nisin producing microbial cell and/or culture medium derived therof. Further provided is a nisin producing microbial cell, derived from parent strain Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis bv. diacetylactis SD96 (NCBI accession No. SRX6686433).
