The influence of substrate composition on the yield, nature, and composition of exopolysaccharides (EPS) produced by the food-grade strain Gluconacetobacter xylinus I-2281 was investigated during controlled cultivations on mixed substrates containing acetate and either glucose, sucrose, or fructose. Enzymatic activity analysis and acid hydrolysis revealed that two EPS, gluconacetan and levan, were produced by G. xylinus. In contrast to other acetic acid strains, no exocellulose formation has… CONTINUE READING
