Saccharomyces uvarum, Geotrichum candidum, Endomycopsis burtonii and Hansemula canadensis have been isolated from deteriorated silages and/or spoiled lactic acid fermented foods. All yeasts could grow in relatively high (100 mmol/l) concentrations of acetate or lactate in Wickerham's assimilation broth but were inhibited by increasing concentrations of these acids. Propionate was much more inhibitory than acetate or lactate. Growth rate, but not final cell yield, was adversely affected by increasing concentrations of these acids. The three acids used in combination were synergistically inhibitory to H. canadensis and G. candidum. Saccharomyces uvarum was inhibited by synergistic mixtures of acetate/propionate. Endomycopsis burtonii and H. canadensis were inhibited by synergistic mixtures of acetate/lactate, acetate/propionate and lactate/propionate. Lactate and propionate had a synergistic inhibitory effect on G. candidum. The mechanism of inhibition of growth of S. uvarum by acetate and propionate was further investigated. Acetate and propionate each caused a reduction in cellular efficiency (Y, μg cells/μmole glucose consumed). Mixtures caused a drastic reduction in growth rate and Y. These results suggest that the cells may expend energy in reducing intracellular concentrations of acetate while propionate probably acts in a different manner.
