BACKGROUND Mediterranean agro‐food industries, among which are wineries, breweries and olive mills, dispose a great amount of wastes, which generate environmental problems and have a low nutritional value to be used as animal feed. In this sense, solid‐state fermentation (SSF) can increase the nutritional value of these wastes and simultaneously produce lignocellulolytic enzymes. RESULTS All fermented wastes were enriched in protein by the three fungi studied. A. ibericus was the fungus with the biggest increase of protein, which ranged from 1.4 times to 6.2 times respect to unfermented waste ...
