Fermentation substrates

Green chemistry Products & ApplicationsFermentation substrates

Tereos Starch & Sweeteners supplies feedstock for fermentation processes:

  • Carbohydrates such as starch, dextrose, glucose
  • Nitrogen sources such as corn steep and wheat gluten

These reliable, pure and consistent substances are used as growth substrates and feedstock for the production of a large number of intermediate products and active ingredients dedicated to the pharmaceutical, food, feed and agro industries such as amino-acids, antibiotics, organic acids (for example citric acid, lactic acid, gluconic acid), enzymes, yeasts, and alcohols (for example ethabol, butanol, butane-diol).

Innovative fermentative processes using carbohydrates create attractive perspectives for industrial production of new building blocks in the chemical sector.
