• Microbial Succession and Identification of Effective Indigenous Pectinolytic Yeasts From Orange Juice Processing Wastewater

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Although the management of citrus residues is of concern, their valorization is a challenging alternative. In this work, raw orange juice processing wastewater was spontaneously fermented to determine the succession in microbial communities and identify new indigenous microbial strains of high pectinolytic activity. Pectinolytic strains were isolated using citrus pectin as growth substrate. A shift in fungal population observed during spontaneous fermentation, where the abundances of Hanseniaspora , Cystofilobasidium and Meyerozyma were significantly increased, whereas Pichia...
