Saccharomyces boulardii

a yeast species widely prescribed for treatment of diarrhea. Molecular typing shows it to be nearly identical, genetically, to S. cerevisiae; however it is metabolically and physiologically different.

A yeast used in recombinant DNA technology to manufacture proteins for medical use, e.g., in vaccine components.

Hence, the objectives of this study were to explore and compare the effects of three different species of yeasts (Candida utilis 1314, S. cerevisiae 1355, and Candida tropicalis 1254) on the in vitro ruminal fermentation characteristics of rice straw and maize stover by ruminal microorganisms from dairy cows, to further understand the mode of action of live yeast species in the rumen, and to provide more valuable information on the live yeast application to ruminants' diets in practice.
