Abstract

A fast growing (growth rate k = 0 63h-1) Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain Y18 from grapes containing 52% protein was used in the feeding trials on rabbits. The total serum protein and albumin levels were the same and were not significantly different in all the four groups. The body weight measurements indicated that the mean effects due to control, yeast and casein diets levels are the same. But the mean effect due to low protein diet is lower than the control, yeast and casein diets levels. Histopathological studies of liver and kidney revealed no abnormal findings. It appears that this yeast protein has no deleterious effects.
