The present observation gains support from the findings of Gayathri and Gopalaswamy (2) who have reported that Acetobacter xylinum
produced 11g/L bacterial cellulose in HS medium after 14 daysof fermentation period.

Studies on fermentation of Monascus purpureus TISTR 3090 with bacterial cellulose from Acetobacter xylinum
Cellulose synthesized by Acetobacter xylinum
is used as raw material for fabrication of the [membrane.sup.a].
Produced by a bacterium known as Acetobacter xylinum
, the cellulose is strong enough to cope with blood pressure and works well with the body's own tissue.
Cellulose synthesized by the aerobic bacterium Acetobacter xylinum
has been useful as a model system for studying of microbial cellulose utilization.
Merriam-Webster's medical dictionary describes it as, "a gelatinous mass of symbiotic bacteria (as Acetobacter xylinum
) and yeasts (as of the genera Brettanomyces and Saccharomyces) grown to produce a fermented beverage held to confer health benefits; also: the beverage prepared by fermenting Kombucha with black tea and sugar." These active ingredients are what make this specialized drink known and more or less used for improving the state of the human body.
Bacterial cellulose (BC) produced by Acetobacter xylinum
has the same composition but has unique properties compared with cellulose from plants and can be considered superior on many accounts.
 also produced BC with ultrafine network architecture and 8-40 nm crystalline microfibrils in diameter by Acetobacter xylinum
and bacterial CNCs by sulfuric acid hydrolysis followed by the oxidation of hydrogen peroxide for their applications in the stabilization of olive oil Pickering emulsion.
