It is difficult to determine fungal biomass growing on a solid medium directly. Therefore, indirect ways of measuring this growth have to be used instead. For this purpose, the kinetics of growth, of substrate consumption and of release of metabolites must be correlated. This has been carried out for Geotrichum candidum and Penicillium camemberti growing on a gelified lactic acid+peptone medium. Peptone was shown to be preferred by G. candidum as a carbon and energy source, in contrast to the… CONTINUE READING
