Abstract Incubation temperature, inoculum size, initial pH and pH control play a major role in cassava starch to glucose conversion by Rhizopus oligosporus. Maximal glucose production was obtained after 45 to 48 h fermentation at 45°C, pH control at 4.0, 5% cassava starch, agitation rate of 300 rev./min. and aeration rate of 85 ml/min. Under these conditions, starch hydrolysis was 99.4% with a starch-to-glucose conversion efficiency of 91.6% and a final yield of 35.2 g/l glucose with a biomass yield of only 2.8 g/100 g cassava starch.
