Natural Xylitol From Candida
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: What about natural xylitol?
Ah! You mean the xylitol made from Candida.
Anyone hosting Candida can “manufacture” their own xylitol.
Candida tropicalis (three of its strains are noted below) is the most prevalent pathogenic yeast of the Candida-non-albicans group.
It’s losing its resistance to fluconazole. Maybe because we’re being overexposed to its DNA and RNA in “packaged goods and baking mixes, candies, gums, mints, jams, syrups, condiments, honey, raw xylitol, protein bars and powders, flavored waters and drink powders, chocolate, peanut butter and nut butters, dental products, etc.
According to R. Sreenivas Rao, et al (“Biotechnological Production of Xylitol from Hemicellulosic Materials,” Lignocellulose Biotechnology: Future Prospects, 2007), xylitol producing yeast strains include …
Candida tropicalis HXP 2
Debaromyces hansenii CCMI 941
Candida sp. 11-2
Debaromyces hansenii UFV-170
Candida guilliermondi FTI 20037
Pichia guilliermondi NRRL Y-12723
Candida sp. (mutant)
Candida tropicalis OMV5
Debaromyces hansenii NRRL Y-7426
Candida mogii ATCC 18364
Pichia stipitis NRRL Y-7124
Candida shehatae NRRL Y-12858

“When sugarcane bagasse hemicellulose hydrolysate was evaluated for cultivation of 18 species of different yeasts, Candida sps. [species] emerged as the best performer (Pessoa et al., 1997).”
Waste streams for “value-added products” like xylitol are virtually unlimited, meaning Very Big Bucks for Really Big Business, turning “waste streams into value streams.”
Xylitol sources include corn husks, corn stover, rice husk, rice straw, wheat bran, sorghum straw, cottonseed hulls, sugarcane bagasse, jute stick, wood chips, ad nauseam.
Hongzhang Chen (Biotechnology of Lignocellulose: Theory and Practice, 2014) wrote …
“A study showed that the superior performance of the yeast strains for producing xylitol was mainly concentrated in the genus Candida, such as Candida guilliermondi, Candida tropicalis, Candida mogii, Candida parasilosis, and partly in Debaromyces hansenii, and in Pachysolen, such as Pachysolen cannophiluus.”

“Because of the complex toxic composition, only by containing a variety of treatment methods can better detoxification effects be achieved. The excess lime treatment can significantly improve cell growth, but only after extraction with ether can significantly improve the yield of xylitol. With combined use with an ion exchange resin, the activated carbon is superior to the excess lime method.”
In short, selling protein, starch, and fat from agricultural vegetation isn’t enough for Emerging World Order corporations.
Wood to calories generates huge profits.
Very Big Bucks can be reaped from cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin from agricultural and non-agricultural “waste streams,” turning trash into treasure, transmuting industrial waste streams into corporate profit streams.
Why dump waste streams into landfills when they can be dumped into unsuspecting peoples’ stomachs?
