Abstract
Many pigments are important in food, Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Dark diffusible pigment was extracted from agro waste products by using Streptomyces griseorubens DKR4. The aim of the present work was to investigate and observed the maximum pigment production in agro waste residues through Solid State Fermentation. A pigment yield was achieved by employing various agro wastes and residues optimized by various parameters such as 50% initial moisture content, and it was incubated at 40 °C. The colour of the pigments was stable at pH 7.5 and it could be a significant point for application purposes. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report on pigment production using various agro wastes and residues in solid-state fermentation (SSF).
