Title: PRODUCTION OF SINGLE CELL FROM BREWRY EFFLUENT
Authors: Row-land, Stella Toyin.
Issue Date: Jul-1991
Abstract: ABSTRACT There are many useful applications of micro - organisms in the food industry. A variety of important products in diet ( animal feed and human food diet) are produced with the aid of microbial activity. The production of single cell protein has been carried out using brewery effluent as the substrate for three different fermentation runs. The following growth parameters were investigated for the fermentation runs, specific growth rate ~, generation time (tg) and protein content. These parameters revealed that successive generation led to better adaptation of micro - organism to the medium (environment) as indicated by increasing growth rate 11 = O. 0817hr -, O. 0821hr - and O. 0842hr - and decreasing generation time of tg = 9. 154hrs, 8.796hrs and 7.917hrs respectively for the three different runs. The protein content was also found to increase appreciably from 46.4% in the first run to 48.1% in the second and third runs.
