Disruption of yeast cells with high-pressure carbon dioxide at both subcritical and supercritical temperatures (25, 35, and 55 °C) was investigated. The experimental results revealed that yeast cells can be ruptured to a maximal level by carbon dioxide within 5 h at 5000 psi and 15 h at 1000 psi at any of the temperatures studied. In the presence of β-glucuronidase, the length of time for maximal cell rupture was reduced to 90 min at 5000 psi. Off-flavors of the ruptured yeast cells were… CONTINUE READING
