STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: A novel low cost carbon source, sugar containing soy flour extract (SFE), was obtained from defatted soy flour (SF) to culture bacterial cellulose (BC). The enriched protein remaining in SF was used as resin to form BC reinforced 'green' composite. The goal of this research was to fabricate soy protein based membrane-like green composite with excellent tensile and thermal properties and inexpensively grown BC.
