stipitis and Candida shehatae, the yeast species capable of naturally fermenting xylose, are susceptible to inhibitors such as acetic acid, furfural and soluble aromatics in hydrolysates, which do not ferment successfully in detoxified hydrolysate (Delgenes, Moletta, & Navarro 1996; Limtong et al.
These polysaccharides usually contain large proportions of L-fucose and sulfate, together with minor amounts of other sugars like xylose, galactose, mannose and glucuronic acid (Ponce et al, 2003).
As can be seen that the substrate consumption rate was quite high and can ferment both xylose and glucose in contrast with S.
