Yeasts have been known to humans for thousands of years as they have been used in traditional fermentation processes like wine, beer and bread making. Today, yeasts are also used as alternative sources of high nutritional value proteins, enzymes and vitamins, and have numerous applications in the health food industry as food additives, conditioners and flavouring agents, for the production of microbiology media and extracts, as well as livestock feeds. Modern scientific advances allow the… Expand

PRODUCTION OF SINGLE CELL PROTEIN FROM PINEAPPLE WASTE USING YEAST
TLDR
P pineapple waste was used as sole carbon source in five concentrations for preparation of fermentation media on which two strains of yeasts, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida tropicalis were grown, and the present finding helps in SCP production from cheap, inexpensive agro waste material. Expand
Yeast: World’s Finest Chef
TLDR
Yeast has become a key microorganism for many types of industrial and food processing manufactures, including the production of beer, wine, cheese and bread, and is regarded with reasonably interest as nutrients and health provider sources both for humans as well as for animals. Expand
Biotechnology of non-Saccharomyces yeasts—the ascomycetes

  • 2012
TLDR
This mini-review is to describe processes currently used by industry and those in developmental stages and close to commercialization primarily from non-Saccharomyces yeasts with an emphasis on new opportunities. Expand
Chapter 23 Yeast : World ’ s Finest Chef
Yeast is the simplest eukaryotic organism of our days. They are unicellular microorganisms classified in the kingdom Fungi. Nevertheless, yeasts were probably the first microorganism to beExpand
Impact of Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolites produced during fermentation on bread quality parameters: A review
TLDR
More attention should be paid on how yeast impacts flavor, shelf life, color, and the nutritional value of baked products, in a similar way to which yeast strains are selected in the wine and brewing industries. Expand
Evaluation of yeasts from Ecuadorian chicha by their performance as starters for alcoholic fermentations in the food industry.
TLDR
The yeasts selected in this study can be suitably used as dry starters for the microbiologically controlled production of traditional beverages, and also for other alcoholic fermentations. Expand
Production of yeast using acid-hydrolyzed cassava and poultry manure extract
Cassava is made up of starch as its major nutritive reserve. Starch which is one of the most important products synthesized by plants is consumed as food and can be used in industrial processes. ThisExpand
Analysis of Gluten in Dried Yeast and Yeast-Containing Products
TLDR
This study demonstrates that both competitive ELISA and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry provide similar results in the detection of wheat and barley gluten in yeast-containing products. Expand
By-Products in the Malting and Brewing Industries—Re-Usage Possibilities
Beer production includes the formation of different by-products such as wastewater, spent grains, spent hops, and yeast. In addition to these well-known by-products, it is necessary to mentionExpand
Using the residue of spirit production and bio-ethanol for protein production by yeasts.
TLDR
Of the S. cerevisiae isolates tested, two originating from fuel alcohol-producing plants were identified as offering the best potential for the industrial production of single cell protein from vinasse due to highest biomass productivity. Expand

New Trends in Kefir Yeast Technology
The development of new biotechnologies and foodstuffs using kefir yeast are reviewed. The strategy adopted was to examine fermentations of synthetic media containing sugars of raw materials andExpand
Glucose and sucrose: hazardous fast-food for industrial yeast?
TLDR
Recent studies indicate that the use of mutants with altered responses to carbohydrates can significantly increase productivity and avoiding unnecessary exposure to glucose and sucrose could also improve the performance of industrial yeasts. Expand
OPTIMIZING OF SCP PRODUCTION FROM SUGAR BEET STILLAGE USING ISOLATED YEAST
In this study fungi isolated from the effluent of ethanol factories were identified. Optimal conditions for single cell protein (SCP) production and COD reduction of sugar beet stillage are specifiedExpand
Continuous process for yeast biomass production from sugar beet stillage by a novel strain of Candida rugosa and protein profile of the yeast
TLDR
Thermotolerant yeast Candida rugosa isolated from East Africa was used for the continuous production of yeast protein from sugar beet stillages at 40°C, and the yeast protein had adequate essential amino acids, except for sulphur-containing types. Expand
Strains selection of baker's yeast with improved technological properties
TLDR
From the seven industrial strains Saccharomyces cerevisiae was selected as a perspective on the grounds of its biosynthetic and baker's properties, it was established that Strain 10 had higher zymase activity while Strain 3 had higher maltase activity. Expand
Yeast production from virgin grape marc.
TLDR
The convenience of yeast production from VGM is briefly discussed; it appears of great interest in south Italy and generally in grape-producing countries, specially if these lack relevant sources of fermentable sugars. Expand
Improved organoleptic and nutritive properties of bakery products supplemented with amino acid overproducing Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts.
Spontaneous yeast mutants isolated in continuous culture as resistant to toxic amino acid analogues, able to increase up to 40 times their free amino acid pool of Thr, up to 160 times their pool ofExpand
Engineering baker's yeast: room for improvement.
TLDR
New strains of baker's yeast that produce CO2 more rapidly, are more resistant to stress or produce proteins or metabolites that can modify bread flavour, dough rheology or shelf-life are now emerging. Expand
Biotransformation of vegetable and fruit processing wastes into yeast biomass enriched with selenium.
TLDR
Water extracts of cabbage, watermelon, a mixture of residual biomass of green salads and tropical fruits were used for yeast cultivation and feed value was enhanced by incorporation of selenium in biomass to the level of 150 microg/g of dry biomass. Expand
Use of waste date products in the fermentative formation of baker's yeast biomass by Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
This work was an approach to waste date products valorization through biomass production with the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae by substituting date-coat (fleshy part) sugar extract, date-seed hydrolysate, and ammonium nitrate for semi-synthetic fermentation medium. Expand
