Oryzae has recently been divided into lactic acid producers (R. oryzae) and fumarate–malate producers (R. delemar) (Abe et al. 2007; Kito et al. 2009), although the latter might equally accurately be described as ethanol producers. It is not clear whether or not all of the R. oryzae-delemar group can grow anaerobically, although it is established that Amylomyces rouxii, which comprises domesticated variants of R. oryzae/delemar, is able to grow anaerobically (Graffham et al. 1995; Hesseltine et al.

Sudarmardji and Markakis (1977) and Sutardi and Buckle (1985a) also detected phytase activity in tempe but, as the tempes were not produced aseptically, they will have included bacteria and it is not possible to unequivocally attribute the activity to the tempe mould. The purified phytase enzymes exhibited relatively high thermostability with maximum activities at 55°C (Sutardi and Buckle 1988) or 65°C (Casey and Walsh 2004) and wide pH tolerance, leading to the suggestion that the R.

8 Relative Growth Rates Relative growth rates of fungi are commonly estimated by measuring the rates of hyphal extension on solid media. While this is simple to do, it is recognised that the observed rates may not accurately reflect the rate of increase in biomass because the density of the mycelium may differ under different conditions. Many zygomycete fungi are characterised by very high growth rates and Rhizopus species are typical in this respect. The predicted maximum hyphal extension rates for R.
