Investigations were carried out on the production of fungal rennet using a thermophilic strain of Mucor miehei under solid state fermentation conditions. A high milk clotting enzyme activity (58 000 Soxhlet units/g) was achieved when optimum conditions were used. A high ratio of 6.6:1 between milk clotting and proteolytic activities for this enzyme was obtained. Cheese prepared using this enzyme was also found to be acceptable in organoleptic quality. Large scale production of the enzyme in trays using optimum conditions gave milk-clotting enzyme activities comparable to those in flask experiments.
