Ganoderma Lucidum (Curtis) P. Karst. Submerged Cultivation Peculiarities on the Bread Crumbles Substrate

In the present paper, we investigate biomass, exopolysaccharide, phenols, organic acids, reducing and dry substances accumulation and pH of cultured broth during submerged cultivation of G. lucidum 1900 on bread crumbles. It shows the future prospects and the possibility of using this waste from the food industry in Ukraine. We demonstrate that maximal biomass and exopolysaccharide concentration can be obtained on the 15th day of cultivation (18,10  0,2 and 5,2 ± 0,3 g/l correspondingly).
