Fructose can be used as a substrate in yeast fermentation
What thing act as substrate in yeast fermentation?
Fructose can be used as a substrate in yeast fermentation is a false statement. Before the yeast could ferment with fructose, it had to turn it into glucose. When there is no oxygen around, yeast can break down a wide range of sugars. Carbon dioxide is made as a by-product. By measuring how much carbon dioxide is being made, a spirometer can tell how fast fermentation is happening. The substrate for fermentation was chosen to be glucose because it makes up more than 70% of the sugar-reducing hydrolysate in the step before fermentation called hydrolysis.
