Fermentation Method

This technique takes advantage of specific microorganisms that synthesize large amounts of specific AAs when cultured on media containing carbohydrate and an inorganic source of nitrogen. Selective breeding over the years has resulted in cultures that produce specific AAs with great efficiency. Commercial fermentation commonly takes place in tanks with a capacity of 50,000 to 300,000 l. Upon completion of the fermentation process, a variety of separation and purification techniques are used to produce pure crystalline L-AAs. This is currently the major method used for industrial production.
