Abstract

If and when economic conditions and technological advances become favorable, fungi may some day be significant in furnishing human food through their protein-synthesizing capacity. The yeast, Torulopsis, has already been utilized on a commercial scale in this direction in Germany, Jamaica, South Africa, India, California and Wisconsin.
