Abstract

Production of microbial biomass rich in proteins in the era of lack of food has recently gained importance. By using biochemical reactors, it is now possible to explore microbial growth for acceleration of protein biosynthesis. Proteins of higher fungi could be used for food. Growth behavior of Polyporus squamosus MMOL 87, a new higher fungus, has been examined in submerged bioreactor using molasses substrate. This organism was found to be a good converter of all molasses sugar into SCP. Influence of initial substrate concentration (So) on specific growth rate, specific substrate uptake rate, and biomass yield has been investigated. Rheological properties of fermentation broths affect the fluid flow, mixing, bubble size, i.e. mass transfer process in bioreactors.
