Yeast Candida Bombicola is described to synthesize sophorolipids. Sophorolipids biosurfactant is categorized under the family of the glycolipid molecules with surface tension lowering capacities. These biosurfactants offer an environmental friendly alternative for the petrochemical derived surfactants used in various sectors and attract quite some industrial attention due to high yields when cultivated with Yeast Candida bombicola. On top of their surface lowering properties, sophorolipids display several interesting biological activities, allowing applications in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical and medical field. Sophorolipids production processes were outlined as well as recent findings on the biosynthetic pathway. From this study over 300g/l of sophorolipids was produced and 65% substrate conversion was achieved by the action of yeast candida bombicola on Cassava wastewater. Recent and novel applications of sophorolipids are summarized.
