In this study, a novel generic feedstock production strategy based on solid-state fermentation (SSF) has been developed and applied to the fermentative production of succinic acid. Wheat was fractionated into bran, gluten and gluten-free flour by milling and gluten extraction processes. The bran, which would normally be a waste product of the wheat milling industry, was used to produce glucoamylase and protease enzymes via SSF using Aspergillus awamori and Aspergillus oryzae, respectively.
