Abstract

Newer aspects of microbial protein production and protein enrichment of various agricultural wastes and agroindustrial byproducts in solid state fermentation are described. It is pointed out that SSF is attractive due to its low level technology, reduced reactor volume per unit substrate converted and the direct applicability of the fermented product for feed production. SSF of lignocellulosic substrates, starchy material, citrus wastes, normal apple pomace and carob pods is also presented. Some typical SSF processes for protein enriched animal feed production have also been tabulated along with data on substrates and microorganisms.
