Abstract: Citric acid an industrial organic acid produced by As pergill usnig er from Manihotesculenta peel with different carbon and nitrogen sources. Glucose enriched medium showed maximum yield of citric acid. Ammonium chloride and ammonium per sulphate reduced the formation of citric acid. The high amount of citric acid was observed in ammonium di hydrogen phosphate enriched source. The optimum yield of organic acid from cassava pulp in the presence of fungi was found in 20 days of fermentation with pH3and room temperature.
Keywords: Fungi, Carbon, Nitrogen Fermentation.
