The production of bioprotein by coconut dregs is found to be a novel and cheaper carbon source. Media optimization for bioprotein production from coconut dregs through solid state fermentation has been developed as a one of the approaches to increase the protein production. The utilization of these coconut dregs provides as alternative substrates and also helps in solving waste disposal problems. Among the seven media components, only NH4NO3, MgSO4.7H2O and CuSO4.5H2O were found to be significantly affecting the bioprotein production.
