Title
Production of ethanol from enzymatically hydrolyzed soybean molasses
Abstract

Soybean molasses (SM) is a by-product of soybean meal concentrate. It is rich in sucrose, raffinose and stachyose. Stachyose and raffinose are not directly fermentable to ethanol but, when hydrolyzed, can be metabolized by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In this work, we studied (1) the production of ethanol from natural SM by fermentation with S. cerevisiae, (2) the enzymatic hydrolysis of SM by α-galactosidase and the subsequent fermentation with S. cerevisiae (HF), and (3) ethanol production via the simultaneous hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF) of SM. The results showed that, although the fermentation of natural soybean molasses provided a fermentation yield of 72.9% under optimized conditions, hydrolyzed soybean molasses provided a fermentation yield 7.6% higher using the HF process and 8.2% higher using SHF. Both fermentation processes resulted in lower concentrations of residual sugar.

► Soybean molasses is a by-product of soybean meal concentrate rich in carbohydrates. ► The aim the study was to evaluate the production of ethanol by fermentation of SM. ► Soybean molasses proved to be a potential substrate for ethanol production.
