Zygosaccharomyces rouxii NRRL Y-64007

Zygosaccharomyces rouxii NRRL Y-64007 is a halotolerant, osmotolerant, xerophilic, and fructophilic yeast. It grows in the presence of organic acids at low pH. It has been used for the production of soy sauce and wine making, suggesting that the yeast could be classified as GRAS. It has the potential to produce a several volatile compounds, including ethanol, ethyl propanoate, 1-butanol, ethyl 2-methylpropanoate, and 2-phenylethanol.
