Abstract

An inadequate supply of protein rich foods in the human diets is mainly due to the rapidly growing world population. A need for food protein compels us to explore unconventional protein sources. One of the most promising and important source is the single cell protein (SCP). Mushrooms are the oldest SCP foods of man. At present, mushroom cultivation is the only major fermentation industry which involves the bioconversion of organic cellulosic wastes into edible biomass.
