Table 1 Biomass, glycogen and floridoside yields at different phases of G. sulphuraria growth in medium with 1 % glycerol and no salt

From: Floridoside production by the red microalga Galdieria sulphuraria under different conditions of growth and osmotic stress

Middle exponential 2.68 ± 0.51 29.39 ± 2.50 1.20 ± 0.04
Late exponential 4.15 ± 0.19 36.76 ± 2.03 1.41 ± 0.14
Stationary 4.94 ± 0.17 35.40 ± 5.79 0.47 ± 0.06
