Abstract:

Nduiyi is a traditional amylolytic starter used to produce sweet-sour alcoholic beverage, called Nduijao by Jeme Naga in Dima Hasao (formerly, North Cachar Hills) district of Assam. The aim of this study was to examine the Yeast flora present in Nduiyi collected from Dima Hasao district of Assam. Total 4 samples of Nduiyi was collected from Jeme Naga villages of the Hill district. Based on cell morphology and Phenotypic characterization isolates were identified as Candida glabrata and Saccharomyces cerevisae. It was hypothesized that both the groups of Yeast have a primary role in alcohol fermentation.
