Production of lipids and polyunsaturated fatty acids by solid-state fermentation

  • Mestrado em Biotecnologia, 2018


Solid-state fermentation (SSF) is a promising biotechnological process that allows the use of inert supports to the growth of microorganisms to obtain value-added products such as lipids. The use of this type of supports for the realization of SSF, such as polyurethane foam (PUF), offers better extraction processes and allows this residual plastic material to be reused. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are essential in healthy diets and their production is extremely important, since mammals cannot synthesize them, so they need to ingest them from food sources. They are present in animal pro ...
