Regarding the fermentation of nata de coco, contrarily to studies concerning the isolation and identification of cellulose-producing strains, ecologic studies on nata production are very limited. In 1998, Bernardo et al.  verified that starter cultures used in the fermentation of nata pellicle were composed of mixed populations of microorganisms, primarily of different Acetobacter strains. These authors collected a variety of wild-type cellulosesynthesizing microorganisms from several regions of the Philippines, used in the production of nata de coco.
These include strains from the genera Acetobacter, Komagataeibacter, Agrobacterium, Aerobacter, Azotobacter, Rhizobium, Sarcina, Enterobacter, Escherichia, Salmonella, Klebsiella, Gluconobacter [60–68]. Notably, K. xylinus (first described by Brown ), being the highest cellulose producer, has been the target of significant interest in academic and commercial exploitation. A few commercial applications of BNC already exist, being focused mainly in biomedical applications . Its relevance, both academic and commercial, was very recently summarized in the first book exclusively dedicated to this biopolymer “Bacterial Cellulose: A Sophisticated Multifunctional Material” .
