Food crisis is a major issue in underdeveloped and overpopulated countries. Due to this crisis, many people are prone to get affected by various health disorders and nutrition relation problems. The protein sources for vegetarians are very limited. Due to globalization, there is a change of lifestyles, and there is an increase in consumption of junk food. Consequently, there is a rise in the number of obese people. Protein supplements are expensive and not easily affordable for everyone. Hence, there arises a need for a protein source, which is consumed by everyone and has high nutritive value too. With the ever-increasing rise in pollution, the quality of food and vegetation is falling. Maybe due to globalization, the food choices are increasing, but the contamination and adulteration are rising too. Purity has become a major concern for people at present. To combat these problems, single cell protein from microorganism can be used as an optional nutritional source. This article talks about different microorganisms sources of single cell protein.
