SUMMARY: Growth and fat synthesis in are influenced by a number of nutritional factors. Monosaccharide carbohydrates provided the best carbon source for growth and fat synthesis. Organic nitrogen substrates were inferior to ammonium phosphate for fat accumulation, although high yields of mycelium were obtained. These media probably enhanced protein synthesis. The balance between carbon and nitrogen in the culture medium influenced the rate at which fat synthesis occurred. High concentrations of carbohydrate (glucose) resulted in large yields of mycelium with a high fat content.
