A Research on Whey as a Renewable Substrate for Single Cell Oil Production by Saprolegnia diclina

Abstract—The objective of the present laboratory scale experiment was to assess utilization of cheese whey by Saprolegnia diclina IMI 318623 for biomass and lipid production. Current interest in single cell oils (SCOs) accumulated by oleaginous fungi centers around the ability of these microorganisms to convert agro-industrial surpluses and residues into lipids as potential alternative to edible plant and/or animal lipids, lipids containing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) or biodiesel. The results indicated that Saprolegnia diclina can utilize whey for biomass and lipid accumulation, however, cannot adequately synthesize long chain PUFAs probably due to depletion of specific ω3 fatty acid desaturases and elongases.

Index TermsSaprolegnia, single cell oil, polyunsaturated fatty acids, whey.
