Isolation and Identification of Thermophillic Fungi from Storage Rice Products

Mene S., Naz S.

In present study isolation of fungi were done and chiwada from storage rice product such as poha murah. These organisms usually grow during storage of rice products and produces mycotoxins that are carcinogenic or mutagenic for human beings. Isolation of thermophillic fungi were done at 45C from different sample of rice storage products in different media by Warcut (1950) method. Morphological studies were done and stained by lactophenaol cotton blue. Identification were done with the help of various Literatures related with fungal identification. Result were shown that during storage of various rice products poha, murrah and chiwada different thermophillic fungal diversity were obtained. More number of thermophillic fungi were found in poha (4) and murrah (3) as compare to chiwada (2). A. fumigatus and Rhizopus sp. shown dormancy on storage rice products whereas A. flavus in murrah and Mucor sp. and Rhizomucor sp. found in poha. Effect of various temperature (25-45C) and media (YPSS, Malt agar, and Potato Dextrose Agar) on thermophilic fungi result were shown that 45C temperature and YPSS media highly supported growth of fungi. By these investigation easily understand the rice-grain fungal species and raised awareness about the control of fungi contaminated food and feed. This studies, we can find out effective and safe method for controlling grain fungi during storage may be the microbe-mediated (biological) control measure to overcome the economic losses.
