Table 2: Mean values with standard error of xylitol concentration [g/l] during K. marxianus IMB strains screening. Factor strain shows the mean values over all temperatures and factor temperature shows the mean values over all strains. Values with the same letter for each column were not significantly different (α = 0.05).
