Acetoin (3-hydroxy-2-butanone) is an important flavor compound, widely existing in dairy products and some fruits. An study has been performed on acetoin production Bacillus subtilis TH-49. The mutant was obtained by treating B. subtilis NT-50–44 with compound mutation and subjecting it to a shake flask fermentation selection procedure. It was proved that the main metabolite produced by mutant strain TH-49 was acetoin and there were almost no 2,3-butanediol and 2,3-butanedione by gas… CONTINUE READING
