When the Ashbya gossypii fungus was first described in 1926, the tiny filamentous fungus was regarded with suspicion: as a tropical plant pest. Cotton plants that it infested no longer grew properly and citrus fruits dried out. But Ashbya gossypii can also make a positive contribution to the health of humans and animals. If vegetable oil as well as other nutrients are added to it, it produces vitamin B2, which is of key importance for many animals. It helps the human and animal organism to convert proteins, fats and starches into energy. At BASF the vitamin is produced via fermentation in special stirred tank reactors made of stainless steel. Here the temperature, pH value and ventilation are adjusted to suit the fungus so that it produces as much vitamin B2 as possible. BASF produces more than 1,000 metric tons of the vitamin annually and processes it, for example, into the animal feed additive Lutavit® SG 80.
