Pullulans produced from the Aureobasidium pullulans fermentation of various agro-industrial wastes were characterised in terms of carbohydrate analysis. heterogeneity and molecular weights. Grape skin pulp extract (GSPE), starch waste (SW), olive oil waste effluents (OW) and molasses (M) were used as substrates for the production of pullulan. A glucose based defined medium (D) was used for comparison purposes. Weight average molecular weights were determined using size exclusion chromatography… CONTINUE READING
