Microorganisms able to produce vanillin in excess of 6g/l from ferulic acid have now been isolated. In Pseudomonas strains, the metabolic pathway from eugenol via ferulic acid to vanillin has been characterised at the enzymic and molecular genetic levels. Attempts to introduce vanillin production into other organisms by genetic engineering have begun.
