Published on

Solid-state fermentation (SSF) or Solid Substrate Fermentation has been defined as the fermentation process occurring in the absence or near-absence of free water.
SSF employs natural raw materials as carbon source such as cassava, barley, wheat bran, rice bran, sugarcane bagasse, cassava bagasse, various oil cakes (e.g. coconut oil cake, palm kernel cake, soybean cake, ground nut oil cake, etc), fruit pulps (e.g. apple pomace), corn cobs, saw dust, seeds (e.g. tamarind, jack fruit), coffee husk and coffee pulp, tea waste, spent brewing grains, etc
