Galactonic acid and its salts can be potentially used in foodstuffs and as specialty chemicals. So far, the researches on microbial conversion of galactose to galactonate are still scarce. In this study, we initially used Gluconobacter oxydans strain NL 71 to convert galactose to galactonic acid via aerobic fermentation by fed-batch and product separation… CONTINUE READING
