Microorganisms as an alternative source of protein
Microorganisms could be used as a source of protein, especially in developing countries where many people have poor diets. They can also be fed to farm animals, thereby releasing corn and soybeans for human consumption. Microorganisms could feed on crop residues and other agricultural wastes, converting them into usable protein. Bacteria, fungi, yeasts and algae are the most commonly used microorganisms for this purpose.
