Abstract:A global logistic model was used to study the effects of both quantitative variables (NaCl, acid, and potassium sorbate concentrations) and dummy variables (laboratory medium or brine, and citric, lactic, or acetic acids) on growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae IGAL01. The deduced equations, with the significant coefficients selected by a backward stepwise procedure, allowed estimations of the simultaneous comparison of behaviors of levels of the qualitative variables as a function of the quantitative variables and the development of the growth–no growth limits according to laboratory medium or brine and the different types of acidifying agents. The S. cerevisiae growth region in yeast malt glucose peptone broth was always wider than that in brine, in which this yeast was inhibited by 0.03% potassium sorbate and 6% NaCl, when the acid concentration (regardless of type) was 0.2 to 0.3%. These results demonstrate the applicability of such model designs to include qualitative variables in investigations related to the development of growth–no growth limits.
