Bjerkandera adusta produced aromatic compounds such as benzaldehyde (bitter almond aroma), benzyl alcohol and benzoic acid from L-phenylalanine (3 g kg−1). Two supports for the fungus, wheat bran (organic support) and Perlite (mineral support), gave optimal production with water contents of 66% and 60%, respectively. Benzyl alcohol (4.53 g kg−1) and benzaldehyde (1.56 g kg−1) were produced after 4 days on wheat bran respectively with 20 and 30 g L-phenylalanine kg−1. Aryl alcohol oxidase… CONTINUE READING
