A strain LP23 that can convert L-fructose to L-sorbitol was isolated from soy sauce mash and identified as Aureobasidium pullulans. The cells grown on L-arabinose were found to have relatively high L-fructose to L-sorbitol conversion potential. Addition of erythritol to the reaction mixture considerably accelerated the conversion rate of L-fructose to L-sorbitol. During the conversion reaction, erythritol was added to the reaction mixture at 8-h intervals to maintain the concentration of… CONTINUE READING
