In conclusion, we give a mathematical conclusion to the researchers in the field as follows: researchers of cheese whey fermentation for single-cell protein production should give suitable feedback state (the value of h), control parameters (b), and appropriate initial concentration of microorganism and substrate in order to obtain a steady and optimal production.
