Abstract

Vitamin C, an important organic acid, is widely used in the industries of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, beverage and feed additives. Compared with the Reichstein method, biotechnological production of vitamin C is an attractive approach due to the low cost and high product quality. In this chapter, biosynthesis of vitamin C, including one-step fermentation processes and two-step fermentation processes are discussed and compared. Furthermore, the prospects of the biotechnological production of vitamin C are also presented.
