Kinetics of Solid-state Fermentation
Kinetic studies in SSF are generally considered difficult as the heterogeneous nature of the SSF processes poses difficulty in biomass estimation. This is because the biomass cannot be separated from the fermenting substrate, a fact, which does not allow to obtain a homogeneous sample during the fermentation. These problems are particularly acute in the case of fungal growth and mycelium production.
