Summary

Of 21 yeast strains screened for ability to hydrolyse phytic acid salts, nine strains grew on sodium phytate as sole source of inorganic phosphate. Of the five most interesting strains for their growth parameters tested and for their phytase activity in batch-culture,Schwanniomyces castellii CBS 2863 had the highest phytase activity in presence of 5 g phytate I−1.
