Mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL) are surface active compounds produced by fungi with potential as biosurfactans in personal care and cosmetic applications. Within this work the microbial synthesis of MEL was investigated using several Pseudozymastrains. Each strain produced a specific MEL composition. The obtained biosurfactants showed good emulsifier properties and high surface activity.
