%X Alternative low-cost carbon and nutrient sources, as agro-industrial by-products, are essential for a feasible industrialization of microbial oils production. Here, soybean molasses was evaluated as a low-cost substrate for Mucor circinelloides URM 4182 growth and lipid accumulation. Three culture media based in soybean molasses were analyzed, including the utilization of synthetic growth factors and corn steep liquor as added nutrients. Robust biomass growth (up to 9.6 g L-1 ) and satisfactory lipid content (18-26 wt.%) were obtained for all tested media, although addition of extra nutrients did not represent a valuable strategy to increase lipid productivity. Fatty acid profile showed major composition of palmitic acid (C16:0) and suitable characteristics for biofuel and nutraceutical applications. Results indicated soybean molasses is a promising alternative low-cost carbon and nutrient sources for microbial oil production.
