The Bacillus fermented products, such as Japanese natto and Thai thua nao, are quite different from tempe. They are greyish or brownish in colour with a sticky texture, a strong flavour and a musty, ammoniacal smell. The traditional Bacillus fermentations are not inoculated, suggesting that one factor promoting a tempe mould fermentation is inoculation. Undoubtedly, other environmental factors are also involved in obtaining mould fermentation rather than a Bacillus one. 2 Soya Beans in Indonesia Soya beans originated in north China and from there have spread around the world.

2007) identified 10 Rhizopus species, with R. arrhizus having three varieties and R. microsporus having six, namely azygosporus, chinensis, microsporus, oligosporus, rhizopodiformis and tuberosus. Growth of R. microsporus var. oligosporus NRRL 2710 was identified as R. arrhizus var. arrhizus but R. microsporus var. ), was confirmed to be R. microsporus var. oligosporus. Liu et al. (2008) investigated delimitation of the Rhizopus varieties based on the intergenic spacers of ribosomal RNA gene (IGS rDNA) sequences.

Courtesy of M. 12). 13). It serves to eliminate contaminant vegetative bacteria and fungi from the beans, to soften the beans and to inactivate trypsin inhibitor and other anti-nutritional factors. Cooking in water is easier than steaming, but loss of water-soluble nutrients is higher with boiling than with steaming. The temperature of steaming is slightly higher than cooking in excess water. The soya beans may be boiled once or twice, depending on which system is preferred. 13 Boiling soya beans in small-scale industry.
