Eleven microbial strains were tested for their ability to produce xylonic acid from xylose. The production of xylonic acid by one of the strains,Pseudomonas fragi ATCC 4973, was further studied in laboratory fermenter scale. The yield of xylonic acid was 92 % of original sugar. Xylonic acid production seemed to be growth associated and it was found to be very sensitive to the decrease of pH.
