Biosynthesis of Citric Acid by Locally Isolated Aspergillus niger Using Sucrose Salt Media

Sikander Ali, Ikram-ul-Haq, M.A. Qadeer and Javed Iqbal    

Abstract: Sixteen different cultures of Aspergillus niger were isolated from different soil samples. These isolates of Aspergillus niger were evaluated for citric acid fermentation in shake flask. Sucrose salt media was used and the volume of fermentation medium was kept at 25 ml. The cultural conditions such as pH (3.5), temperature (30°C), incubation period (8 days) and sugar concentration (15%), were optimised.
