1.Single cell protein: A probable tool to fight against food scarcity
Anamika Malav and Prahlad Dube
Food scarcity is a global problem and is increasing day by day due to population explosion, rapid industrialization, increasing demand of natural resources and pollution. The scientists are trying to solve this problem by increasing agriculture productivity as well as harvesting animal resources. Now, this is also reached to a level of saturation so new tools and technology are needed to be explored to solve food problem. In the present paper, SCP production from different sources using many micro-organisms specially oil seeds cakes and Soya waste, as a substrate for single cell culture and protein production in laboratory and as a pilot project has been discussed in the present paper. Keywords: Single cell protein, Food scarcity, Protein supplement, Yeast.
