Abstract
Polysaccharides produced by microorganisms are utilized for a variety of purposes, including the use in cosmetics and as food additives. More recently, polysaccharides have been exploited by the medical and pharmaceutical industries, and those originated from many species of mushrooms have been especially useful in industrial applications; however, the production and synthesis of these compounds is costly and time consuming. In this study, we developed a method for low-cost production of exopolysaccharide (EPS) that effectively screens components and optimizes medium composition using statistical methods (Plackett-Burman and Box-Behnken design). As a result, we obtained the following optimized medium: sucrose 165.73 g/L, sodium nitrate 3.08 g/L, dipotassium phosphate 1.00 g/L, potassium chloride 0.50 g/L, magnesium sulfate 0.50 g/L, ferrous sulfate 0.01 g/L, and 0.71 g/L of Ashbya gossypii extract. The maximum production of about 29 g/L EPS was achieved in the optimized medium during 84 h batch fermentation.
