Title
The use of microorganisms in l-ascorbic acid production
Abstract

l-Ascorbic acid has been industrially produced for around 70 years. Over the past two decades, several innovative bioconversion systems have been proposed in order to simplify the long time market-dominating Reichstein method, a largely chemical synthesis by which still a considerable part of l-ascorbic acid is produced. Here, we describe the current state of biotechnological alternatives using bacteria, yeasts, and microalgae. We also discuss the potential for direct production of l-ascorbic acid exploiting novel bacterial pathways. The advantages of these novel approaches competing with current chemical and biotechnological processes are outlined.
