Carob Fruit as Source of Carbon and Energy for Production of Saccharomyces cerevisiae


Carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.) aqueous extracts were prepared from carob pods and kibble (pods minus seeds) particles of 0.5 to 1.0 cm diameter, at 45 °C for 2hr. Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells were grown on extracts by fed-batch method at 32 oC, an optimal pH 5.5, and shaking at 300 rpm for 10 h. The cell yield and yield coefficient were 12.6 % and 0.27 g /g… (More)
