Biotechnological Production of Xylitol with Candida Yeasts

  title={Biotechnological Production of Xylitol with Candida Yeasts},
  author={Tom Granstr{\"o}m},
The aim of this study was to develop a biotechnological production process for xylitol. The xylitol production characteristics of Candida millerii, Candida guilliermondii and Candida tropicalis were compared. C. tropicalis was the best xylitol producer. A volumetric productivity of 5.7 g xylitol L h was achieved with 69 % yield from D-xylose on a mineral medium with a modified repeated fed batch production method. The xylitol production mechanism was confirmed by chemostat cultivation studies… CONTINUE READING
