The performance of fermentation processes is greatly influenced by the size and quality of inocula. The characterization of the replicative age is decided by the number of birth scars each yeast exhibits on its cellular membrane. Yeast ageing and inoculum size are factors that affect industrial fermentation, particularly those processes in which the yeast… CONTINUE READING
