Candida famata R28 showed potential growth at 36 h cultivated cells (absorbance 40 at 600 nm) for D-arabitol production on substrate concentration 5~20%. Among the various carbohydrates, highest growth was observed in medium containing D-glucose. In the production of D-arabitol, reaction gave 5.0% D-arabitol from 10.0% D-glucose without producing any by-product. The product was finally identified by HPLC analysis.
