AIMS To select a carotenoid-hyperproducing mutant and to formulate pineapple juice as a carotenoid production medium. METHODS AND RESULTS Yeast strain of Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous mutant GM 807 (derived from gamma irradiation) and the mutant n78 (from neutron irradiation) were selected based on higher carotenoid production in diluted pineapple juice as a medium. The selected strain was evaluated under various concentrations of pineapple juice. The results obtained in the study demonstrate… CONTINUE READING
