Fructooligosaccharides are prebiotics with numerous health benefits within which the improvement of gut microbiota balance can be highlighted, playing a key role in individual health. In this study, an integrated one-stage method for FOS production via sucrose fermentation by Aureobasidium pullulans was developed and optimized using experimental design tools. Optimization of temperature and agitation speed for maximizing the FOS production was performed using response surface methodology… CONTINUE READING
