A natural isolate, Candida tropicalis was tested for xylitol production from corn fiber and sugarcane bagasse hydrolysates. Fermentation of corn fiber and sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate showed xylose uptake and xylitol production, though these were very low, even after hydrolysate neutralization and treatments with activated charcoal and ion exchange resins. Initial xylitol production was found to be 0.43 g/g and 0.45 g/g of xylose utilised with corn fiber and sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate… CONTINUE READING

To simulate influence of hemicellulosic sugar composition on xylitol yield , three different combinations of mixed sugar control experiments , without the presence of any inhibitors , have been performed and the strain produced 0.63 g / g , 0.68 g / g and 0.72 g / g of xylose respectively .
