Abstract: The objective of the present work was to evaluate the protein fraction of Aphanothece microscopica Nägeli cyanobacteria cultivated in the parboiled rice effluent, submitted to different drying conditions. The production of the biomass was done by using wastewater from the process of rice parboiling in a bubble column bioreactor. The biomass was separated from the effluent by centrifugation and dehydrated in a tray dryer at 40, 50 and 60°C and thicknesses of 5 and 7 mm. The eletroforetic profile of proteins of the biomass was analysed by SDS-PAGE and presented bands with molecular weight between 62.5-15kDa. The amino acid profile was higher than the concentrations recommended by standard FAO, with the exception of the amino acids (LYS) and the sulphurated (MET+CYS). The functional properties characterisation in terms of protein solubility and emulsification capacity demonstrated the influence of the drying condition in the protein functionality of the biomass.
