Solution

The correct option is A Filtration
Filtration is the process used for separating suspended particles like cell debris and suspended solids from the fermentation mix. The process is similar to straining tea using a tea strainer. As the liquid is passed through a porous medium, liquids and gases pass through while solids are retained.
